"You can see why it's a classic, it drove like cadillac..."

You might might recall the inaugural FCS Shaper Awards that were run near on a year ago. It included the Legend Award which Bob McTavish took out, (and the Icon Award, which was given to Jon Pyzel).

Bob McTavish is of course a pioneer of surfboard shaping and design, his revolutionary affect on the sport and culture going back all the way to the 1960s.

Part of the whole deal was that Bob would shape a board for Mick Fanning, and would you have a look at the swell that hit the North Coast of NSW on the day Mick rolled up to check out what Bob had made! Three time World Champ Mick Fanning, on a beautiful McTavish single fin, at a long pumping pointbreak? This is a dream.
