      McTavish Surfboards was founded in 1962 by Bob McTavish (Byron Bay, AUSTRALIA), and boards bearing the McTavish name have been in production ever since. Bob is now heading across to Olatu, at Pukas, in August 2015: "I'm going to be there for a couple of weeks doing custom shapes. If you like me to shape you a board I can shape you something special when I get there." With a lifetime of experience under his belt Bob shows no signs of slowing down, and still surfs daily.

              The Making of 50 years of surfing in Qld through the eyes of the ASAQ & SQ. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ASAQ and Surfing Queensland, the then CEO of Surfing Queensland , Scott Gillies approached me and said that he would like to make a documentary of the history of surfing in Queensland in general, but looking at it through the perspective of the ASAQ and Surfing Queensland. I tried to persuade him to try an easier option, but he was adamant and so the adventure began. I recruited producer Sky Kinnamont and cameraman/editor Dwayne Fetch to the cause and we decided that the best and only way to tell this amazing story was to get the key participants of the various times to take us on their personal journeys through the 50 years. We broke down the 50 years into 10 year segments, which in a 1 hour documentary, means the each decade has around 10 minutes allotted to it. That meant that it had to be a broad sweeping look at our history and cover the different coasts, follow the progression of the surfing and the board designs, the administration, judging, coaching and the clubs. We are much indebted to the surfers who gave the time and wisdom in the interviews, those who sourced out old photos, film, video tape and memorabilia that captured the history of the 50 year journey. All the interviews of the incredible cast of characters that were interviewed, of which only short bits were used for the documentary, are on record forever now and will be made available over the years to come, as are the films, videos, photos and memorabilia. This has been a labour of love with everyone gladly giving of their time and expertise to tell the story of our history and make a record of it for all time. Enjoy the ride. The Surfers Interviewed are:- Mal Sutherland, Bob McTavish, Ken Adler, Phyllis O’Donnel, Billy Stafford Jnr., Tony Dempsey, Paul Daley, Terry Baker, Paul Neilsen, Mal Chalmers, Wayne Deane, Andrew McKinnon, Robert “Bushy” Mitchell, Glen Elliott, Kara Webber, Peter Townend, Wayne “ Rabbit” Batholomew, Michael “Munga” Barry, Mark Richardson, Jay Phillips, Gary “Kong” Elkerton, Andrew Stark, Bede Durbridge, Phil McNamara, Mick Fanning, Mitch Parkinson, Dimity Stoyle, Scott Gillies.

                The Dorada 7'10 egg is actually our #00 model, built in 2010 after a year long process of trial and a lot of error. This was the very first board with no leaks, the ultimate proof that our technique for building hollow unglassed boards with paulownia wood was completely reliable. We surfed the board a few sessions and passed it to a friend, who passed it to a friend... until we lost count. No idea of how many people surfed it or how far it traveled, but when it came back to our hands three years later it looked like it had been through a war. It has never been re-varnished, the bamboo fin has been repaired a few times, it has dings all over the place and it seems to have a couple broken ribs. But still, no leaks at all! I just dicided to give it a go on a recent Mediterranean swell... and what a rush! The trim on the Dorada is so ridiculously smooth that now I'm wondering if wooden boards mature like wine... Could it be?
