As if I was not yet a practiced desingner/shaper. Looking at the results of John Cherry, he seems to pour it out as if he just has it all on tap. John Cherry inspires me to do my best.
Come to think of it, it may just run in the family. Thank you Brother John
and thank you Uncle Terry (Martin)for giving me your best over these decades. Keep pouring you guys.
In Light & Love,
Rich Pavel

Wow, Thank you Rich. That means a ton to me. We are both blessed to have Uncle Terry in our lives. But truly, I think you may have no idea how much you have inspired me and taught me about shaping and fin technology during our collaborations and our casual visits. It is indeed a family affair. I am always stoked to know I'm doing a set of fins for one of your boards. I will always be grateful.
