The book, Bob McTavish… Stoked! is about the formation of the original Aussie surf culture in the sixties, the Cast-your-fate-to-the-winds lifestyle we adopted so we could chase surf everyday. The crazy antics like stowing away to Hawaii, eating spiders, and jumping off cliffs; the survival techniques like getting paid to get a mohawk, living on bread and bananas for weeks on end, the travel on the scunge, sleeping in old cars or where-ever. And all the time progressing as a surfboard shaper, culminating in the development of the shortboard.
Bob MacTavish is an inspiration to surfing progression and will be in-store signing copies of his book.
