Founder of the McTavish brand in 1962, Bob McTavish is a surfing house-hold name. Over the past 46 years Bob has shaped thousands of custom boards for thousands of happy customers. He started his career in the 60’s, working for such great labels as Scott Dillon, Dale, Hayden, Bob Davie, Morey-Pope, Keyo, and Cord, before setting out on his own in 1969. Bob has travelled and shaped in Hawaii, USA, New Zealand, and all round the Australian coastline.
Over the years Bob has pioneered surfboard technology that is now common-place in almost all boards. Things like vee bottoms, concaves, and rocker profiles. Bobs designs are always cutting edge, and often imitated. His work on developing the short-board is also well documented.
With a lifetime of experience under his belt Bob shows no signs of slowing down, and still surfs daily.
