Hardly anyone makes decent boards these days, unless it's a garage brand. I picked up a McTavish here the other day, and wondered why it was so light. It would get blown across the water even with someone sitting on it. Then I noticed 'Made in Thailand' in tiny writing at the bottom of the board. Must have been 2oz glass on either side.

After all that, McTavish is one of the Aussie iconic surf brands, and he's gone and done that. Such a shame, everything comes down to cheap-Chinese crap as the benchmark.

Nice to see someone doing it under the name of 'craftsmanship.'

You’re right- but there are some good boards still being made by hand. Just back from Panama and rode my new Kazuma, made in Haiku, Maui. 6’6”, 4 oz both sides. Worked great , much better than my 6’0” Lost Puddlejumper.
Oh yeah- also was $520 including fins.
