    Came across this on CL and recalled a few guys from North LA that had a few of his boards at the Surfy Swap awhile back, and claimed they were fantastic. Any info on is boards? Anyone own one? Contact info? I love the looks of this egg for sale, but I would want one quite a bit smaller. I am looking for an egg and am obviously looking into Mitsven, anyone else know of shaper I should be looking into?

    Guy has a solid reputation but is very low profile. Humble to the point that he doesn't use lams and prefers to avoid social media. You can order custom and occasionally find new on the rack at Birds Surf Shed. One of the young Carlsbad reef rippers I know has an entire quiver of only M Griffin boards.

    I ordered a fish from him yesterday. I'll give a ride report when I get it.

    I've had my 5'10 twin keel out twice with great results, taking into account my lack of fitness and having owned a 7'0 egg as my smallest board for over a year. Mike did a great job of putting volume into the board for my 200+lbs frame, while still making the board very sensitive.
