McTavish Bluebird Review


What the McTavish Surfboards site says about the Bluebird:

‘The Bluebird was born of necessity. By 1970 the Shortboard Revolution was three years in the past, and the Plastic Machine, Rincon, Tracker, and Egg had all been rapidly developed, leading finally to the Bluebird. Developed at uncrowded Lennox Head, the flat bottom shape delivers perfect planing speed and the bulky but low rails provide great paddling and glide through mush. The Hawaiian influence of the widest point forward of halfway and the pulled in tail delivers the most classic bottom turn in the business, and a sweet forward trimming zone like no other. In the barrel or on a mushy wall, it’s a drop-turn-trim format that gets you way down the line every time. Loads of fun!’

What people are saying about it:

“The Bluebird logo has come to embody the spirit of McTavish – free as a bird, cutting edge, quick and agile. The Bluebird design model has no boundaries today, and encompasses both re-makes of the original elegant Bluebird boards, and modern incarnations dreamt up by customers and staff. Performance is always fun, and the boards are beautifully made.” – Surf Science

“We’re not ones to blow our own trumpet, but these boards really are something special. With navy blue resin tints and opaque pigment patches these boards pay proper homage to the Blue Bird legacy, and that’s just the start” – Deus Customs
