I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but Monk does incredible work! I just got my board that he split, and it is beautiful! I'll post some pics when I get a chance. He is also a super nice guy and easy to communicate with, making sure you are getting exactly what you want. When I wasn't sure what I wanted, he helped guide me in the right direction, but was never pushy about anything. Awesome board! Awesome guy! Thanks, Monk!
