Fit Ocean Magic Glide – Our all-round favorite

The Magic Glide from Fit Ocean is our favorite under all Allround SUP boards. This board is a top performer of versatility and thanks to its shape very stable. The glide excels with its outstanding properties and the particularly good material quality. We say: Quick access to Sthe sport and enjoy the freedom on the water!

Key facts at a glance

  • Very good design
  • Ingenious handling characteristics
  • very good quality
  • Versatile application
  • Good and comprehensive accessories
  • A 100% purchase recommendation

Our rating

The Fit Ocean Magic Glide is one of the best SUPs for beginners. Thanks to the width of 81cm, the board is particularly tipping stable, which means that even newcomers have a safe standing. In addition, the Magic Glide is very stiff and resilient.

People up to 90kg keep dry feet. For those who are looking for a SUP with more power, Fit Ocean Cruise could be the right alternative.

The interior design and the quality of the board are top. The internal drop-stitch construction gives the board its high stiffness. The deck consists of a 2 ply PVC layer and the sides even of 3 ply PVC. Accordingly, scratches are not a problem for the Magic Glide.

The tread of the SUP covers almost the entire upper side and has been realized with a soft EVA coating. A safe stand is thus guaranteed. A bungee net is attached to the front board area. Fit Ocean has dispensed with metal rings and instead used flexible belt loops.

In the rear of the board, the air valve is inflated and a D-ring for fixing the leash. The supplied double-stroke pump makes the inflation of the particularly easy. Air is blown in both upward and downward movements. Accordingly, you only need half the time.

The Magic Glide’s fins set off from its competition. As usual the board has three Finns. However, only the middle fin is removable. The two side fins are firmly integrated. This special feature gives Magic Glide better handling and stability.

All in all, the Fit Ocean Magic Glide is a cheap SUP board with high quality. We would recommend it to anyone and wish lots of fun on the water.

Factory inspection 2018 iSUP’s

Thousands of FIT OCEAN boards and all perfectly constructed. Call us a little bit crazy but we still do inspect every single board by hand. And besides, it is great to meet the folks in the factories personally, discuss new technologies and ofcourse thank them for their work.

The FIT OCEAN boards for 2018 look astonishing, the colors came out spectacular and it was extremely hard to find any errors during this check, except for some pencil marking to erase or polishing. We look forward to selling these boards next year and knowing the quality is that good we will have an easy year.

All iSUP’s in the world are being produced in China. The FIT OCEAN’s in one the most renown factories in the industrie with highly skilled workers.

Clockwise
1) Found a little marking during inspection to polish off. It reads ’30’ which is a code for the worker who made the board
2) We asked to meet who this is and where introduced to Mr. Zho
3) Checked!
4) All board get pumped up to 15 PSI and left 72 hrs. Afterwards we measure again to check

Clockwise
1) Thousands of FIT OCEAN Magic Glide 10’8 all perfectly made with CAD software and 3D printing
2) Diamond groove EVA brushed deckpad for optimal grip and soft for your skin. D-rings for a kayak seat
3) Neopren padded handle
4) New for 2018, the FIT OCEAN Cruise in Green

Clockwise
1) Boards need to have a 100% perfect straight flat bottom
2) The FIT OCEAN Windglide in orange
3) With an extra hard plastic disk under the EVA deckpad to carry the load of the sail
4) Polishing off some spots found during inspection

TECHNOLOGY

FIT OCEAN Boards are extremely robust and made for extreme conditions as well as long term use. The main reason is that they are made in one of the worlds most renown factories. Re-inforced Drop stich, smooth PVC cut out by computer, Fusion Technology, German work processes and glued in perfect circumstances with 179K ZEBEC™-glue, that makes the boards extremely durable. Together with our shape concept, Swiss quality controlling they build the foundation for the unmatched longevity and performance of FIT OCEAN boards. Go to the limit and beyond…

Your advantage & our extra effort: Quality Inspection by the Swiss Team

All FIT OCEAN boards are factory tested: Boards are pumped to 15 PSI and surpass a 72 hr inflation test. Additionally our FIT OCEAN Swiss Quality Team inspects locally in the factories each and every single product, before being shipped. Inspections: 2018; 2017 

MLT – Multi Layer Technology – How does it work?

The extra Rigid PVC deck and bottom are connected by thousands of nylons called drop-stich, to keep the functional shape.
On top of that, extra layers of PVC are melted / fused on it. In the past those extra layers where glued on top but modern technology melts extra layers on it (Fusion Technology), making boards stiffer, 30% lighter, more durable and more eco-friendly.

2 Layers Fusion Super light

Lady, Malibu, Sports, Family and Magic Glide are lightweight and robust made in the 2 Layers Fusion super light. This is 2 layers on top of the dropstich for the hull. These layers are melted together forming one thick layer of PVC which is stiff and very light. Light Boards can be fragile, especcially when the PVC is only 0.55 mm thin, like some of our competitors use. FIT OCEAN uses a much thicker PVC for increased durability and stiffness. Still our boards are among the lightest on the market. This construction is appropriate for shorter non-planing boards. Since 2018 we use a reinforced dropstich material which allows the board being already usable as of 10 PSI for riders under 80 kg. Riders over 80 kg can still pump to 15 PSI. Less pumping, more paddling!

2 Layer Fusion Premium

Windglide, Cruise, Speedster, Allround Wave and Ultra are lightweight and super stiff made in the 2 Layer Fusion Premium. A new frontier in inflatable construction. This is 2 layers with extra thickness on top of the dropstich, which are also melted together keeping the board light. Together with the highest density Dropstich on the market it forms a superstiff Board, in that construction can be pumped up to 25 PSI. Riders under 140 Kg. are recommended to pump maximum 20 PSI. Modern technology like the premium construction gives extreme stiffness, which is appropriate for fast planing boards.

Hybrid Inflatable Carbon Construction

The Ultra 14” is made in Premium construction and additionally have a hard carbon stringer glued to the deck for extra stiffnes and speed. This is hands-down the closest an inflatable can come to a composit hardboard. Because the carbon fibres are laid all in the same length-direction, you can still roll it up. This technology is licenced from Inflatable Composite™ (US Patent 8273427) and made in the USA.

FIT OCEAN – fin box inside the hull of an iSUP

FIT OCEAN is the Swiss brand for inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards. A problem we saw with the inflatables, was that the finbox glued on the bottom of the board, causes drag. We produced a finbox with US fin box system that can be glued inside the hull, just like with hardboards. FIT OCEAN boards are made in a premium factory that used their double chamber technology to secure air tightness. We noticed the board has a better glide, is faster, turns better and also is very stable. After 2 years testing we are now using it in our production boards. For example in the FIT OCEAN Ultra 14ft iSUP, which won in its catagory in the 2018 Glagla race.

The glue – The devil is in the details

There are several brands of glue on the market, each in it’s own price class. We choose the most expensive 179K from the brand ZEBEC glue. Why? it creates the most durable product. Side-rails and accessories such as handles, Leash-rings, Bungee ropes and kost of all EVA decks should remain fix for very long life time and the 179K assures it.

BOARD SELECTOR

Which size? Quick rule of thumb.

  1. Check how much volume a board has. This is measured in Liters.
  2. Then take your own bodyweight + add 110 Liter. This together should be lower then the volume of the board.

For example bodyweight is 80 kg. Then 80+110= 190 Liter. A good board would be the  MAGIC GLIDE 10´8 with 280 Liter volume. The additional volume offers stability and enables paddling with kids on board. This board automatically also fits a lighter persons.

Which model?

ALLROUND/ FAMILY/ BEGINNER
Practically 80% of our customers buy an ALLROUND/ FAMILY board that suits the whole family. These Boards are fairly wide (minimal 30” =76cm) and very stable to stand on. They are easy to inflate and are usually offered as a complete package with a basic aluminium paddple. These boards have a hull-shape that functions on lakes, ocean and rivers. Hence, they are allround.

TOURING
Additionally there more specific catagories. For example boards that focus on going faster and going on longer distances. These boards excel in flatwater, can handle small waves and track great in a straight line. Depending on the width they can also be used to learn to paddle.

ALLROUND SUP & WINDSURF
These are basically normal ALLROUND Boards with the bonus option to attach a windsurfsail and install an additional fin in the middle of the board to sail upwind.

RACE
A raceboard is all about going fast. But actually that does not always mean going very narrow. Speed also comes from stability onboard being able to transmit the power of a paddlestroke into the water nice and smooth without wobbling. That is why the FIT OCEAN race boards also function as a regular board for cruising.

WAVE
These boards must be able to and track in a straight line when paddling out, and turn quickly going down the wave.

YOGA/ FITNESS
These boards have extra large deckpads to exercise and are super stable.

TECHNOLOGY

FIT OCEAN Boards are robust and made for extreme conditions as well as long term use. Drop stich with high-quality nylon garn, smooth PVC cut out by computer and glued in perfect circumstances with 179K ZEBEC™-glue is, what makes the boards extremely durable. Together with our shape concept they build the foundation for the unmatched longevity and performance of FIT OCEAN boards. Go to the limit and beyond…

CONSTRUCTION – How does it work?

The extra Rigid PVC deck and bottom are connected by thousands of nylons called drop-stich, to keep the functional shape.

HEAVY DUTY LIGHT CONSTRUCTION (HDSL)

Lady, Malibu and Magic Glide are lightweight and robust made in the Heavy Duty Light construction. This is 2 layers on top of the dropstich for the hull. These layers are melted together forming one thick layer of PVC which is stiff and very light. This construction is appropriate for shorter non-planing boards. Light Boards can be fragile, especcially when the PVC is only 0.55 mm thin, like some of our competitors use. FIT OCEAN uses a thicker PVC layer for increased durability and stiffness. Still our boards are among the lightest on the market. New for 2018 we use a stronger dropstich material which allows the board being already usable as of 12 PSI. Less pumping, more paddling!

PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION (PDLL)

Windglide, Cruise, Speedster, Allround Wave and Ultra are lightweight and super stiff. Made in the Premium construction. This is 3 layers on top of the drop-stich, this makes a board super stiff. Modern technology like the premium construction molds the layers (instead of glueing them together like some competitors). Molding saves 30% weight compared to gluing, yet keeps extreme stiffness and is more eco-friendly.  The extreme stiffness is appropriate for fast planing boards.

HYBRID INFLATABLE CARBON CONSTRUCTION

The Ultra 12’6 & 14” are made in Premium construction and additionally have a hard carbon stringer glued to the deck for extra stiffnes and speed. This is hands-down the closest an inflatable can come to a composit hardboard. Because the carbon fibres are laid all in the same length-direction, you can still roll it up. This technology is licenced from Inflatable Composite™ (US Patent 8273427) and made in the USA.

WHY WE ARE HERE

Our goal: that you have a fantastic day on the water, with our top-quality gear for good prices.

Beginning

In 2009 we got hooked on SUP after paddling a race, the 11-cities SUP tour in the Netherlands. Shortly after our surfshop also sold SUP Boards.
Quickly we felt that the inflatable paddleboards could be made of better quality and have better pricing.
So we found investors, high-quality factories, designers, teamriders and started our own Swiss brand FIT OCEAN®, a family owned business. We listened to input from customers, team riders and created dozens of prototypes before a board went into production. All our allround boards are 15cm thick for stability and paddling with dry feet. And all Boards are equipped with a double-action pump to make pumping up easier.
Because our boards are made in the more renown factories, the quality is outstanding and comes with a 2 years warranty. Furthermore we personally check each and everyboard ourselves in the factory before shipping.
Last but not least, you can buy the boards directly from us on BOARDdiscount.com and save the dealer-margin. Now you have a top-quality board, for a fair price.

2018 Update

Less pumping, more paddling! For 2018 our allround boards LADYMALIBU and MAGIC GLIDE are made out of premium HDSL dropstich material, so riders under 85 Kg. only have to pump to 10 PSI instead of 15 PSI. Riders above 85 Kg. can still pump to 15 PSI.

Waterproof quick-manual! All boards come with tipps on installation, safety and maintanance. We also added a chapter on technique, as there is more behind the stroke as you would think.

Hybrid Carbon inflatable Boards! During the Summer of 2017 something was brewing in Switzerland… We started a cooperation with the American company Inflatable Composite™. They produce a thin hard carbon layer that can be used to stiffen up inflatable paddleboards. Yet it still can be rolled up like a normal inflatable board. At the same time several SUP races took place in Europe. Our teamriders told us what prototypes to make and went on winning races. The endresult are 2 new boards for 2018: the FIT OCEAN ULTRA in 12’6 and 14′. Because of it’s construction, these boards are not only fast, but also very stable, enough for sportive beginners.

We hope to inspire people to live adventure filled, healthy lifestyles. Whether you are a beginner, novice or expert we have a Stand up Paddleboard, to suit your needs.

Have a great session!
