1978 Bob Mc Tavish shaped SKY twin fin clocks some tube time.
After much debate I decided to pack my 1978 Bob Mc Tavish shaped 6'1" single fly swallow tail twin fin for some 'tube testing' at Cloudbreak, Tavarua Fiji.
The only change from its last trip being I replaced the FCS plugs with Future Fins. It was my best performing board of the trip and even attracted the eye of Rusty Preisendorfer who wanted to have a close look at its lines.
Its narrow swallow tail and large fin bases did not slip an inch on any of the heavier take offs and its sharp rails and relatively gentle rocker held high and tight in the tube.
The interesting thing about this shot is it reveals how far forward the sweet spot is on this shape. Right in line with the wide point.
An attempted shot from inside the tube. Its harder than you think.
