Aloha Till Next Summer Grasshopper

Susan and I always hate saying goodbye to Francesco DiTommaso, his wife, Manuela and daughter, Vittoria. They spend 8 weeks here every summer, but it's never long enough.
Francesco shapes in Italy. But he always takes a couple new boards back to Italy with him
(plus a blank or two to shape) This year it was a 9'6", Hobie, Tyler Warren, One-fin-Pin and
a 10' chambered balsa nose-rider that Terry Martin and I built and shaped for him.
