With a DT-1 rocker, regulars of other Takayama boards will feel very comfortable on the Prince Kuhio. The medium rocker makes paddling easy and easy to surf. Donald's patented 60/40 rails and tucked edge help make this board very forgiving in turns. Available in a 3 fin configuration, it can be used as a single fin or a 2+1 depending on the style of the surfer.

- Length: 9'0"
