Super friendly, kind, discreet and always ready to welcome you. Bob MITSVEN is an incredible shaper and all his boards are handmade with the least number of machines possible. He began surfing at the age of 11 in San Diego – California and formed his first board in 1972 and officially launched his label in 1988. Today with more than 40 years of shape behind him (and a lot of happy surfers) It remains one of the references of the shape for everything that is Longboards, Big waves guns and hybrid boards in San Diego. Bob interacted a lot with his friend and legendary shaper Skip Frye!
We asked Bob Mitsven to send us a couple twin keels with pulled in tails for maneuverability in tight spaces. He recommended his Derek Hynd template. The rails are slightly turned up, offering a delicious edge for strong bottom and top turns. These boards will work in a variety of conditions and will have you grinning when the waves are sub-par or...
The B-tail quad has the speed and planing of a fish surfboard but is much more fluid and manuverable as well as much better performing top to bottom on the face of the wave. The same for backside waves. This new model features a wider nose, relaxed rocker, a single to double concave bottom contour, and Mitsven's own rail style.
The egg of Bob Mitsven are beautiful, they are built for the speed avec their rail 'Skip Frye'. Perfect for found the right line on the wave and if you like carve on the rail. This board with his down rail keep lot of egde for more reactivity.
A variant of the Egg Mitsven with a more width in nose and single fin. At the base for the Japanese market. This Egg is a design that you can enjoy a wide range from soft waves with soft outlines and somewhat boxy rails that are shaped with beautiful lines from wider nose to round pin tail in rounds.
The mini Glider is a shorter version of the big GLIDERS of 10-12'. They keep all the fluidity and easly slide but with more accessibilty for a surfer who don't ride a big longboard. More shorter means more reactive and easy to turn when the wave are not so good.
