Founded by surf industry pioneer Bob McTavish, McTavish Surfboards have been in production non-stop since 1962. The boards have been manufactured under many labels over the years, as Bob has shaped for the likes of Barry Bennett, Scott Dillon, San Juan, and Morey-Pope.

In 1996 McTavish Surfboards signed a licensing agreement with Surftech, to allow McTavish boards to be manufactured with their revolutionary ‘Tuflite’ epoxy construction. This gave customers a broader choice of equipment, as epoxy boards were growing in popularity. 2007 saw McTavish Surfboards sign an international manufacture and distribution agreement with Global Surf Industries (GSI) which made McTavish boards available worldwide, in over 30 countries.

The company has existed in many forms over the years, but is now truly international, with a factory and retail operation in Byron Bay, Australia, and distribution of 20 different models to over 30 countries. The McTavish range is broad, from affordable boards to start out on, up to high end collectables made from balsa, and other exotic materials. With over 45 years of experience, the McTavish team are working hard on innovation and design, to lead the next decade of surfboard development
