What the McTavish Surfboards site says about the Sumo:

‘The Sumo model is a high-volume mid-length with speed to burn. The wide point is way forward, and the tail is pulled into a tight pin. With all the volume under your chest the board is easy to paddle, and once you’re up and riding that narrow tail really comes into play. The board comes with a 2+1 fin set-up, but can also be ridden as a single fin if preferred.’

What people are saying about it:

“Everyone needs a grovel board. Whether you’re just starting out or have lost a bit of paddle power as you get older a high volume shortboard makes a lot of sense. What we like about the McTavish Sumo is with all that foam and width you get speed, stability and high wave count but with the narrow tail you also get hold and control in situations where the waves get a bit bigger or steeper. As a result the McTavish Sumo is a really great all rounder.” – Magicseaweed

“Personally I think this board is awesome, it looks so fun!!! It reminds me of the Takayama Scorpion and the Dewey Webber Feather Fastback both of which are legendary shapes in the surf world.” – Pioneers Boardshop

“Classic double ender best suited to retro style surfers looking for a small-wave funboard. The Egg has a flat rocker profile and a versatile 2+1 fin set-up allowing it to be ridden as a single.” – Surf Tubes

“The McTavish Sumo is a user friendly mid-length with plenty of speed: capable of holding its own in a wide range of conditions.” – Down The Line Surf

“Nose is wide from the Center nose than to have volume, will take off soon, Pintail tight tail control is easy. Fine setting, you can enjoy 2 + 1 or single fin and various conditions.” – user arasoan on Rakuten Global Market

“Looking for the perfect board to shred those cold New England waves? McTavish has what you need. This fast, easy to paddle board, progressive rocker board is an absolute blast in the water.” – Paul Remy on Thuro Shop

“I have two different sizes in the Sumo and love them!” – user buffalosurf on Instagram
