Michael Baron (MB) is a surfer’s shaper. His professional surfing career led him to take his talents into the shaping bay after competing where he rode his own boards.
Fellow surfers took note of this and MB’s shaping career started to take off. Joey Buran, the California Kid, took MB’s handshapes to win titles. Jeff Booth rode his way into the top 5 with the collaboration of MB in the shaping room. The input of the surfer is top priority for MB. He loves it when the likes of Tom Carroll can stop by the bay and they can discuss performance, dimensions, and the feel to produce a custom handcrafted board for the surfer.
High performance shapes is what MB specializes in. Experienced surfers will agree that MB is a master craftsman and a grom at heart. When he’s not full of foam dust, you’ll see him in the line up this homebreak in Oceanside.
MB shapes surfboards for some of the biggest names in wave riding over the years: Tom Carroll, Danny Fuller, Jeff Booth, Joey Buran, Mick Campell, Robie Page, Gary Saavedra, Martin Passeri, Diego Cadena, and lots of current up and coming groms.
