"Hi Chris thanks for the message. The board is back in my hands and has been parading herself at Saunton and sometimes Croyde. You have done a great job and I am so happy to get her back so seaworthy! Surfs like a dream :) Thank you! ...I emailed countless experts on wooden surfboards and no one came up with the solution you offered. Everyone all said its hard to make wooden surfboards and impossible to fix them but you did just that. The craftsmanship of your repair is outstanding and you made it into a feature of the board."

"Dear Chris, Thank you for doing such a brilliant job, bringing the board make to life again.
I really appreciate all the work and expertise you have put into restoring it to its former glory ….and beyond.I love the mat finish you have used and all the detail you took pains to preserve and retouch. I never would have thought that from the sorry state it was in, having been dumped in a skip in Rotherhithe, that you would be able to work such magic and make it such a beautiful thing….I love it. Thank you so much. Davina
