Mctavish Original

Manufacturer Description
The Original is a radical longboard that has been blowing minds for over 15 years! It was the first modern performance longboard, and was pieced together by Bob using all his knowledge gained from leading the shortboard revolution. The board has a radical flipped rocker profile and a very hippy tail, giving it an accurate pivot point. The Original is loose and fast off the tail, while retaining good noseriding ability. Available with or without nose channels, The Original is an Aussie favourite!

I heard Industry guys raving about this one for years. I recently picked up a 9'1 Surftech version and found out they were right. The proper blend of concave, rocker, bottom channels and pintail make it all come together. Definitely one of the best longboards for beach breaks.

I've had my surftech Original for 6 years, still my first choice even in bigger waves.

A great alround board. Good in steeper waves due to the rocker.

The ORIGINAL surftech is my favorite board for medium to big wave, it's a real performance board for who like to surf longboard like a shortboard....on small condition is hard to paddle and to noseride.

I've had several of these, Surftech, EPS and poly. My favorite longboard ever. Set up with thruster fins, rips rail to rail and vertically.

I own this board in SLX (and also previously the Fireball Evo SLX). This is a better all-around board. Better for late drops on bigger/steeper waves and more lively than the Evo.

I have a Surftech version of this. Paddles like crazy and handles very well for its volume.

I had many McTavish boards. The PU Original is an excellent board but unfortunately now in two pieces. The Surftech Original after 2 years as my main ride is still in mint condition. I paddled out at Cabarita NSW Aust. and who do i see. Bob McT riding a Surftech Original. He tells me its his go to travel board. MINT
