Are he and his brothers mentioned a lot in Barbarian Days or do I have him mixed up with another pro surfer Glenn from Oahu of the same generation?

Leland ....
Same person that you're thinking about from Barbarian Days.Roddy & the younger brother still live here on Kaua'i. Roddy was working at the Lihue airport at one time. I see the younger brother cruising around Kapa'a town. Both surfed as well.
Glen was quite a character & big as life. Crazy buggah at times.

Aloha nooo, bruddah Glen. Aloha noo ...

Glenn's son Kaiea was my classmate at Kamehameha. We were on the waterpolo and surf teams together, I remember him telling me a story about his dad winning a heat without getting his hair wet. RIP.
