Anyone involved in the industry recognizes Bob Mitsven. A San Diego native, he has been shaping seriously since 1974. As low key as he is, he lets his boards speak for themselves. No acid splashes distract from the pure lines that "look like the board is moving forward while it's standing still."
To date he has hand-shaped over 11,000 boards in a small shaping bay in a sprawling San Diego complex. The prolific shaper's styles cover long boards to short boards, big wave guns to fish. You can deal with someone that has the full range of experience and the talent to improvise when needed.
