I was thinking about buying the one in Encinatas, but don’t think there’d be enough difference from my 10’6” to make it worthwhile to have both. For a glider, I think the 10’6” is the better length.

Rick, I think you have the Takayama Prince Kūhiō too right? Do you miss the 2+1 on the board to the Roy Sanchez single setup? Thanks.

I don’t. The Roy Sanchez Tribute Dreadnought glider surfs really loose for such a long board (10’6”), and I really like it. It seems to surf much shorter then it is. I don’t have any problems with just a single setup with it holding in the face, so I haven’t seen any drawbacks.
I prefer the 10’6” over the 11’1” of the Prince Kuhio both in and out of the water, so I actually haven’t been surfing the Prince at all lately. I’ve considered selling it, but know I couldn’t replace it in the original construction easily if at all so I just hang on to it knowing I’ll end up surfing it again.

One thing great about the Prince Kuhio in the original Surftech construction is that I’ve surfed it a fair amount and yet after stripping the wax off the other day and cleaning it up, there isn’t one pressure dent on the deck or a single blemish on the board. The original Surftech construction is without a doubt the strongest most durable surfboard I’ve ever had.
