    in VB, look at Mike Doyle's work. he's in WRV. Then there's Tim Nolte just N of OBX. He was Mike apprentice. He was doing stuff with carbon fibers in a giant seal-a-meal in the 90's.

    Jon Ashton has been shaping in West Ocean City for a long time. I've been buying boards from Jon forever and they are the best I've found anywhere.

    John does make great boards. I have never owned one only because I tend to buy off the rack and John rarely has boards in shops. But I have seen many, from Mitchell's boards to friends that have customs. I'm always amazed at how perfect they look. Everyone who I know that owns them swears they are great looking and riding boards.

    I was thinking about checking with Tim Nolte about a longboard. I have an old 8 ft made by him.
    Here's the link to his website:

    Phil Taylor. He is in fruitland, shaped me a board almost a year ago. Does absolutely great work and has put out some sweet boards. I think Salty at Endless Summer has a few in stock if you want to check out his work. Message me if you want his number too.
