BILL MCLEAN (LAMINATOR)

An industry veteran, Bill started with Bill Cilia on the NSW Central Coast in 1968, before moving to San Juan Surfboards in Byron in 1971, when he also started glassing Bob McTavish boards. When McTavish moved from Lennox Head to Byron in the 1990s, Bill joined the team full time.

JONNO COLE (POLISHER)

A Byron local, Jonno began glassing and polishing at McTavish about a decade ago and is now the number one polisher for the brand.

STEVE KENCH (SANDER)

Steve, originally from Newcastle, started with the brand in the late 1980s. His madcap sense of humour is a feature of the factory.

MAL BUGDEN (FINS & GLOSS-COATING)

Another Byron local, Mal started in the industry in 1971 at San Juan Surfboards, working after school and weekends when he would also wet-rub McTavish boards before they were gloss-coated. Another respected all-rounder, he worked for many brands, including Michael Cundith, before re-joining the McTavish team 20 years ago.
