ISLE Glider Old Version VS ISLE Glider Limited Edition

The only noticeable difference between the old version of the ISLE Glider and the updated version, which is 2.0, is that the old version has more color options than the updated version, which I find odd because the updated version should’ve been created a board with more color options.

The paddleboard design and print are also noteworthy. In comparison to the old version, I believe the new version is more elegant and appealing to the eye. In my opinion, the updated version has great color combinations as well. In the updated version, they should have included more color.

With regards to the Limited Edition of Glider, this paddleboard is more on the artistic side, or shall I say, it is great to hang on the walls because it has a unique painting that will catch anyone’s attention! This is a fantastic paddleboard with a lot of great features. This is a versatile paddleboard that can be used to cruise or surf in flat water.

What makes This Stand-Up Paddle Board Stand out

The ISLE Glider Wooden Paddleboard is one of the most popular wooden SUP boards in glide, thanks to its versatility and high-quality materials. The board’s construction has also been improved, making it a more durable paddleboard.

This has a more elegant appearance than the previous version, but unfortunately, it has fewer color options. This SUP board has plenty of width and thickness, making it ideal for tracking and gliding. Because of the narrow and small design compared to the previous model, this paddleboard will provide you with a comfortable and premium ride.

It has a front bungee where you can secure your gear or even store a SUP cooler if you’ll be out on the water for a longer period. The Lift SUP handle makes storing and transporting the paddleboard easier for paddlers.

Because of its lightweight design and the fact that the center fin is removable, you won’t have to worry about transporting this SUP. Because this ISLE Glider Wooden paddleboard is not inflatable, you will save time and energy inflating it and can get on the water quickly.

It comes with all of the necessary accessories to get you started paddling, but I wish it came with more extras, especially since this is a more expensive SUP board than the previous version. This is one of the best paddleboards if you want something versatile that you can use for a variety of activities. This hardboard comes with a one-year warranty and a 60-day money-back guarantee from the date of purchase.

I was impressed with how easy it was for me to track and glide while playing in the water. At the same time, the paddleboard is stable! I tried doing yoga poses, though I’m not sure if I did them correctly, just to see if the paddleboard was stable enough to do such an activity with.
