Flexi ride

Saturday, May 19, 2012

Dave English was on hand this morning at Broken Head to take the Flextail for its first ride. Not ideal conditions with a short punchy beach-break, but Dave handled it well and says the board is fun but needs more of an open face wave like The Pass. Hopefully we'll get it out there next week for another spin.

Flexi-time

Friday, April 13, 2012

For the past few weeks I've been working on a stand-up Spoon concept Flex-tail. Something that flexes and winds up like a Spoon, but you can stand up on it and paddle it in with ease. Heres a few progress shots, its got a groovy swirl on the bottom too!!

Mentawai holiday......

Monday, August 15, 2011

Its always great to get some photos from a customer who's been out enjoying their new board. This week I got these 2 beauties from Ken Conrick from Melbourne. Ken's just returned from the Mentawai islands where he spent some time surfing Pitstops on his new 7'4" Bobsled and it looks like they got some great waves. Both pics courtesy of John Barton from Pitstop Hill.

Kirra Surf Tradeshow

Friday, August 12, 2011

Last night was the first ever Kirra Surf Tradeshow, where vendors were invited to showcase a range of product and do a presentation to over 300 'Black-label' VIP Kirra Surf customers. The night was a great success, with a ton of pro surfers in attendance including Parko, Mick, Taj, Bede and Richie Lovett. We were showcasing our new Sumo and NEO models and everyone was keen to organise a ride! At the end of the evening there was a board giveaway and a brand new custom McTavish was won by Kana, a super stoked young Japanese surfer living on the Gold Coast for the next 12 months. Next years event promises to be even bigger and better and may even coincide with the Kirra Pro so stay tuned.

Its been a long time coming but the first 2 of the Balsa Collectors boards are ready to go. These are some of the most beautiful boards we've ever had come through our factory - solid balsa, double glossed, laminated timber D fin (thanks Piers!) with a beer tinted halo (thanks Wiz!), and a numbered copper plaque, that we can mount on the deck or on the bottom depending on how the board will be displayed. There will be just 12 made, all hand finished and signed by Bob.

New Model - The Sumo

Saturday, May 28, 2011

The Egg has been a popular McTavish staple for over a decade now, but we often get asked for a high-volume board that will still handle mid size 3-6ft beachies and point breaks. The wider tail on the Egg makes it a bit skatey on the bigger days so its kind of restricted to smaller surf. Enter the Sumo - all the volume you need, and none of the tail width you don't!! Tail widths are around the 14" mark, which really makes this model fly off the tail, and your rail-to-rail transition is easy and flowing. The nose width and high aspect rails keep plenty of volume forward under your chest, so paddling is a breeze. The board retains the same reliable 2+1 fin set-up as seen in the Egg, and comes with a 6" centre fin and GX side fins. We'll be making these from 6'2" up to about 8'0", and the first 3 are available from stock now - check them out here.
