Hi Claudia,
It looks like a good board at a decent price.
If it is still available, just drive over there, offer a bit less, and buy it (if it is a weight reasonable for you)
Then go paddling in VA Beach estuaries!

Worst case, you get a great excuse to go to the beach!

Peace
Rick

Hard to beat JL for quality, I've had my 9'6" B&B for several years now with out any issues.  But, like my B&B, that Hanalei has the old style handle which some might find to be not as comfortable as the newer ledge style handles.  It's always good to know as much as possible before you pull the trigger...maybe there is some additional wiggle room on the price. ;D

Just wanted to point out that this board will be tippy. It's also deceivingly low (160L) in volume with very thin rails for a 10'-8" x 28" board. It's only 4.5" thick. If there's wind chop you may not feel like paddling it. It's a quality board for sure, but oddly on the thin and tippy side for a board that's all most 11 feet long. It's almost in the range of a prone long board for me ::)

Thanks, all.  I might drive over next week and take a look at it if he still has it.  It looks pretty good from here! 
I thought about the tippiness, too.  I think it would be a challenging board that ends up being fun. 
I doubt I could give him more than $500, which heíd be cray to accept, but hey, maybe heís crazy!

Rick, are you going through Norfolk on your trip south?

Bean, how old would the board be to have the old style handle?

TallDude, his ad says the board is 29Ē, but I donít know.  I wonder what the thinking was behind the width?  Iím pretty short, so it might be okay for me.

Not sure about the time frame, but in this case I can tell simply by the picture.  It shows the wavy finger patern of the old style handle as opposed to a straight patten on the ledge style.

I see that. It reminds me of the 10' 6 Naish Nalu which is about the same volume. I'm sure it will be fine if you're not that tall. You can always add a glue on strap handle. My wife has an easier time carrying boards with them.

Itís a 7hr drive.  If it were a sure thing...but, itís not.
I can still get the Cruise Control for around 1050, with shipping.  I donít know if thatís the best $1000 board out there, though.

Thereís also this, vs a new Cruise Control:

Iíd like the $500 range, though.  Charleston is an easy enough drive.

I love my 10'8 Hanalei - it surfs great and I'must more than happy paddling it when it's flat, but it's a 2015 board with the new ledge handle. I moved on to it from a Starboard Wipepoint 10'5 and didn't have an issue dropping down from a width of 32" to 29". The Starboard had an older 'slot' style handle which I didn't like and the ledge handle on the Hanalei is a vast improvement and makes carrying a big board much easier (especially after a session when tired!). Definitely something to consider.
The deal on the cruise control looks amazing. I've never ridden one so it would be interesting to hear how it compares to the Hanalei.
All the best with your decision!

s4e, It took some looking...  but, I found the shot with the two Nalu. (s?)   I have fond memories of the 10-6 but my hazy recall tells me the 11' was just too much - more beasty than the 10-6  ..windage, mass, etc.  If you are small, hit the gym  ...bulk-up.   

That JL looks virtually new to some boards I have seen.  Good parentage too. Put a sticker on that chip.

I want a good board for a good price, but itís true, I donít want a monster.  Options now:  an 11í4 Nalu GTW, a JL CC, or that Hanalei.  The Hanalei is my top choice, but itís a long drive....I have time to think about it.  I couldnít go till next week (Wednesday works for him), and it might be sold by then.  I really like the look of it....I want it to be The One.  🙂
