I have been working with John Cherry on a few boards lately. He gave me these two project boards to do for Sacred Craft. One is a 9'6" nose rider and the other is a 9'0" Simmons replica.
Both boards are chambered balsa. John made the blanks and gave them to Terry Martin of Hobie Surfboards to rough shape and then got them back to chamber them. Terry finish shaped them and John sent them to Ric Allison on the east coast to do the wood on-lay octopus and jelly fish. After so much work already into them I got them to handle the glassing. They were a lot of work as a team effort to get them done but I think the end result came out good.

John Cherry - made the blanks and chambered them, made the fins too
Terry Martin - shaped the blanks
Ric Allison - on-laid the wood designs
Michael Miller - laminated, finned, sanded, gloss+polished them
