Glide is the verb, hang is just an add-on. So the answer is: however you normally conjugate glide.
The past tense of "hang glide" is "flew."
The past tense of "hang glide" is "flew," as in, "Jack flew from here to Carson County in his hang glider today."
Yeah, hang glode seems correct:ORIGINAL glide glided (have) glidedMODEL ride rode (have) riddenRESULT glide glode (have) glidden
I'd say the past tense would have to be "glud" i.e. "Jack glud from here to Carson county on his hang glider yesterday"
The comedian Eddie Izzard says:"I hang glide, you hang glide, he/she hang glides. We hang glid - you hang glidded - they... hang gliddededed."Muddled as it is, I think I've gotta go with it 'cause it's funny. Past tense of hang glide = "hang glid."
"hang glide" is a subject/object. It is traditionally not used as a verb in a sentence. Thus, it should be used as so:1. I went hang gliding the other day2.I am hang gliding right now3.Bob and I are going to go hang gliding tomorrow
"hang glide" is a exocentric compound like "Maple Leafs" and the past tense for me is "hang glided" - altho "hang glid" also shows up in google.
actually forget that, I don't know if it is an exocentric compound.
Eddie says its hang glid, and hang glidded, and hang gliddedidid. So that's definitely it.
Some folks have the same problem with scuba dive ... dived or dove / doven.
But here, with glide, you cannot go wrong! Not only does glide have a weak and a strong form, it has two strong forms!
Even Eddie Izzard isn't far off. There was a very old form, gegliden.
glide, glided, glidedglide, glided, glodeglide, glid, glidglide, glid, gliddenglide, glode, glidden
ALL are correct and have been brooked over the years.
Now just hang "hang" onto the stem:
hang-glide, hang-glode, hang-gliddenorhang-glide, hang-glid, hang-gliddenor ... pick one.
