Getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on a board from Danny Hess, specifically an 11' glider in full wood. Any one have experience? I've admired the aesthetics of his boards for years but never had the chance to ride one. I remember a few of his shorter shapes changing hands here, but never heard any real feedback, especially regarding his longer shapes.

friend has a 10' Hess glider/speedster I sessioned few years back...boards has almost zero flex..pick up a fave LB, give the deck a good pop with the flat of your hand, it vibrates throughout...on the Hess, it just went thud...rode the same way...inert, not lively
