Default Sailing SUP

I want to buy a SUP to use for surfing and lightwind wavesailing. I looked at the Kona and while it seems a great windsurf board it is heavy and narrow and doesn't seem like it will work that well for surfing or standup paddling. I also looked at the Pacifico. Great shape, seems much lighter. Obviously will work well surfing like a longboard as well as an SUP. Doesn't seem like it would go upwind at all when sailing without a daggerboard.

I am interested in your SUP board because of the box for the mid fin but your board is 12 6 nearly a foot and a half longer than the Pacifico. Is this a power box or tuttle box? and can you put a long fin in that would act like a dagger board greatly increasing your cruising range while sailing?

What's it like sailing one of these SUP boards? Is it like sailing the old original windsurfer?
