Dear John Lessing and Mike Baker,
Thank you for taking the time to mentor and guide my son, Carter, with his interest in surfing and surfboard shaping! Shaping surfboards by hand is an art and can really only be learned through apprenticeship from those with more experience. We are so very grateful to Mike Baker for making the connection with John Lessing and for driving him to shaping sessions. We so appreciate you, John Lessing, for spending your time mentoring him and for your follow-up phone calls to discuss design. Passing along the secrets fo the trade to a young man is very kind and your generosity is not lost on us. You are both true legends and personal legends in our lives.
You are my Hero!
