McTavish Tracker Review


What the McTavish Surfboards site says about the Tracker:

‘The Tracker has a pretty pointed nose, the widest point in front of halfway, a flatish bottom with slight roll forward and a very slight vee in the tail. It ripped Lennox and Angourie, and every other empty point break on the Aussie coastline!! The Tracker introduced comfortable barrel riding, vertical off-the-lips, the roundhouse cutback, and variations on the bottom turn, all pretty. Today it does the same, with a smooth reliability and a truly classic feel. Sweet!’

What people are saying about it:

“Goes really nice. Volume was probably 2-3 litres less, than I expected, with that deck roll. No problem though! As a single fin, you want to draw out those turns… Those sharp bottom turns, when you get back up the face, and look for the side biters to give you that thrust, with a quick pump… well that doesn’t happen, because the side biters aren’t there! 😀

Surf it smooth, and it’s no problem. 🙂 Actually very fast down the line, if you get the bottom turn right…

This board is suited to surfing enthusiasts, and people who can already surf. You could still learn to surf on it too though.

I’m going to be having a hell of a lot of fun on this thing! Can’t wait for a fun Bells day now! Overhead Bells… :)” – user Simondo on Seabreeze Forum

“Straight out of 1968, this is the board that started it all – The Shortboard Revolution. Pinched low rails, wide point forward, vee tail, and a foot shorter than its predecessors. The Tracker will smooth out your style, with great down-the-line speed.” – SurfTubes NZ
