    I have a few Mitsvens and love them all, but i'm curious about a log-type shape called the Modern Classic. Anybody ridden one?

    My experience with Bob has been with mid-lengths, and a longer (9') magic... and i've heard he rides shorter boards himself.

    I plan on reaching out to hear from the man himself, but there's nothing like a good, old ride report.

    here's a pic of the shape...

    So, what's your thoughts on this board? What kind of waves? Looks almost like a speed shape...super clean...

    I'm sure there is more too it than the outline but looking at it, to me it looks kind of like a long Magic with a Thinman tail a "magic Braden" perhaps? In any event made by Mitsven it should be unreal. Congrats Vet. Let us know more after you bring it home.

    Had board for almost a month. Playing around with some fins. It has nice rocker that has worked like a champ in our dumpy surf. I've ridden it at our rebound jetty wave where it was a total blast. Also had it in the inlet on some knee high runners - it connects sections like my glider. Board has great rails and the tail is made to pivot and drive. Tim helped me with this one and I can't thank him enough. Now we need some real waves to put it through its paces. Bob and Rick are fantastic to work with and their prices are realistic. Glass work by MM.

    Stoked you connected with that MMC. I've gotten some quality waves on mine this spring/summer season. Super projection on bottom turns, cover some distance! And your board came out unreal. Slide on .....

    I have a couple of Mitsven's and will get another, but that shape just doesn't do it for me...purely aesthetic...

    Do you think the tail shape makes the difference? Would a round pin work as well?
