Left: Bob McTavish with the V-bottom board he took to Hawaii in 1967. At Sunset, where the Duke Kahanamoku Invitational was held, Bob showed flashes of what was to come, but he also spun out and had a lot of swims. The board was treated with contempt by the majority of the old guard on the beach, but some took notice. The potenital of what Bob and Nat were trying to do would be realized later at Honolua Bay on Maui.
