    I have some of his shapes from when he was with Basic Element out of Pine Beach. They ride great, big sweet spots and very loose very well put together.

    I have a single fin egg shape he calls the Honey Badger (pic below). It's basically a shrunken Magic model (Skip Frye style egg). Board is super smooth. Mine is 6'10. Best in chest high and up, clean conditions. Larry makes a sweet egg-- you will enjoy.

    Spoke with Larry and mika last year regarding a ghostbuster very helpful. Mika called me and answered my questions super cool. I ended up with wynn shaping my board half the price and he knows his twinzers. The shipping from San Diego was like 150 bucks. I still want a larmo shape he is a legend heard nothing but good things about his boards.

    That single fin is hot! I had a 6'2" KG egg shape with a thruster set-up by Larry that I loved. Great in all kinds of surf. Slightly thinner than similar boards if I remember correctly, but don't recall the exact dimensions. Ended up trading a friend for something different when I was trying to improve my surfing and thought the wide nose was holding me back. Big mistake, should have never let go of that thing. Couple shots are from a killer January after-snow session at Jenks. I threw in the turn shot bc the board is most visible.picture10.jpgpicture11.jpgpicture13.jpgpicture7.jpg

    What length and what fin setup is yours? The shape looks very similar to the one I loved and lost

    Have a Larry Mabile shaped Gordon and Smith egg from the early 90's. Over 20 years old and still surfs great. Classic shape. Quality never goes out of style

    The board I picked up is a 6'6" Kane Garden. There are no other dimensions written on the board. Its a thruster. FCS fins. A few touch ups and she'll be ready to go.
