That is beautiful work Bob. The attention to detail is terrific and I really like the relief shown on the third pic. Great stuff and thanks for sharing.

Very nice Bob. I’ve not said much. I but I have been watching and admiring them for a while.

Ta daa! It’s been educational to follow the process. I agree with others on liking number 2. It will be interesting to hear a report about the difference in performance (if any) due to the different blade sizes. Have fun next weekend!

Thanks all…these were a blast to make. I’ll be making a lot more. I do hope they get used though. At the very least each has to be tested. One stipulation for my brothers is that if he decides it does go on the wall it has to be used once in the waves at Thousand Peaks. . I would prefer that they meet the level of performance I’m looking for….I’m hooked on blade dynamics as strange as that sounds…:). I want them to be in the hands of people having fun with them and then when they get home it goes on a rack on the wall…..LOL…another idea…include a nice rack.

The gentleman in the video is Giampalo Cammarota, all around waterman and webmaster of the Maui Surf Report. One of my brother’s many acquaintances/friends in Maui. I love reading his blog….I may make him a paddle for letting me get to Maui at least vicariously.
