Everyone needs a grovel board. Whether you're just starting out or have lost a bit of paddle power as you get older a high volume shortboard makes a lot of sense. What we like about the McTavish Sumo is with all that foam and width you get get speed, stability and high wave count but with the narrow tail you also get hold and control in situations where the waves get a bit bigger or steeper. As a result the McTavish Sumo is a really great all rounder.

The McTavish Sumo is a high-volume mid-length surfboard with speed to burn. The wide point is way forward, and the tail is pulled into a tight pin. With all the volume under your chest the board is easy to paddle, and once you're up and riding that narrow tail really comes into play. The Sumo comes with a 2+1 fin set-up, but can also be ridden as a single fin if preferred.

TECHNICAL FEATURES: Progressive rocker, Narrow pin tail, 60/40 rails, Vee to Double concave tail, Versatile 2+1 fin set-up.

  • this board is easy to paddle and has loads of volume.easy to turn and trim.if you're used to sitting out back on a long board then you'll need to sit a bit closer to the peak and take off later but still very fogiving and plenty of time to get to your feet.
