Larry Mabile, one of the great shapers from California is arriving in France today for 2 weeks of shaping at UWL.
Mabile started shaping with Skip Frye in 1979, at Gordon & Smith. From there he worked as a backshaper for Xanadu, for the label Kane Garden until he finally decided to build his own brand Third World Exotic.
With a line of boards that go from the standard thruster to 11′ gliders, Larmo, as Larry Mabile is also known as, got my attention a while back with his amazing interpretation of the mini-simmons called the White Pony, with its distinctive deep swallow tail. Another really interesting model is the Ghostbuster, a simmons-inspired board with a winged diamond tail and a twinzer fin set up.
For more info on his boards visit http://www.larrymabilesurfboards.com or http://www.larrymabile-france.com/
