Words by Rob:
I like to think of the guy at the Donut store that glazes the donuts. Pretty important dude. Kinda makes or breaks a donut.
He’s the GLAZER. And then you have my number one test pilot - TODD GLASER. He’s been riding this board for close to a decade. We’ve been modifying and tweaking it for years.
A little bit of width here... a touch of thickness there... back and forth until we finally agreed that it was ready. Very round and sleek curves. Gentle rockers. Easy to ride for all levels and easy to ride in all types of waves.
Construction: LFT (Linear Flex Technology)
Fin Boxes: FCS2/Futures x 3 (Choose option above - Fins not included)
Tail shape: Round Tail
Dimensions/Litres: See size graph above
Rob’s 5’2 has 27.6 liters. That’s three liters more than his ‘normal shortboard’ and one liter more than his Seaside (he rides a 5’2 in that shape as well). So if you are caught between GLAZER sizes, choose the higher volume size. Because the GLAZER shape hides float in both its thickness, and it’s width in the front, while keeping a very narrow tail. This lets you volume up, without losing control in good waves. It’s the reason why the GLAZER grovels at Seaside just as well as it rides the barrel at Surf Ranch.
LFT incorporates Firewire’s SPRINGER HD, a 0.75” (18 mm) wide aerospace composite that runs down the centerline of the board, representing the next generation in our SPRINGER technology.
The SPRINGER HD runs the entire length of the board and plays a pivotal role in optimizing flex from nose to tail.

Got my new board super quick
Easy web site with lots of information
Will definitely buy again from Sanbah
Super happy with the service, was on my doorstep in Victoria in 3 day's, came faster than the tail pad i ordered from somewhere else 😆 thanks guys
SUper fast but staying responsive, feel great under the right board...
Thus far i have just used them om the Machado Midas, but am frothing to see how they go ion the MAchado Glazer
I was impressed by the rapidity of delivery (free) and the care that went into the packing of the board I ordered. Highly recommended!
I was looking for an all round performance board with good paddle power. Did lots of research and decided the Seaside was worth a try, and got the matching Machado fins. Got the 6.0’ for float as I am an older surfer with knee replacements.
Spoke to a guy who already had one and he said it had transformed his surfing.
That was spot on. Paddles like a demon and performs out of this world, turns on a dime and is so, so fast! Does everything the reviews say. I am absolutely stoked with this board. One of the very best I’ve had in over 50 years of surfing.
I’m very happy with my board, the only disappointment is not getting the 6 foot board I wanted due to being told it was not in stock due to a website error but then when I kept viewing it on your website it said it was in stock.
It will just take a bit longer on my 5’7 blue Eric board to learn to surf.
Ripcurl is the best wetsuit on the market, don't buy any other wetsuit they are inferior. Great service from the crew at Sanbah.
