GG Baby Surfboard Influence

Baby influenced surfboards I have , bottom to top a Miget Farelley stringerless from Aus. , next is a John Price Surfboards Hawaii V- bottom, and a Andreini #1 Vaquero, a Balsa Vaquero and a Liddle V- bottom.

I think that when Mctavish rode Baby with Greenough it really started his wheels turning and helped kick start the shortboard revolution, along with what Brewer was doing in Hawaii.

Some of the first V'bottoms were way crude here in the states , bad rocker , thicktails, and plastic fins. Over the years some of the better ones I have seen are G&S Skip Fryes, Yaters, Surfboards Hawaii and Morey/Pope Mctavish Trackers.

I love that part in the movie Fantastic Plastic Machine when Mctavish is explaining what the V- bottoms are all about to Skip and Munoz, a real turning point in surfboard history.

    I have a very unique board shaped by McTavish in April 1968 at the Bing facility ---- the serial # shows it was shaped for Nuuhiwa --- Both Nuuhiwa and McTavish have seen the board --- They both remember it --- one of a kind "V" bottom --- Greenoughish style fin --- similar to a stage 4 --- I can send you a pic.

    I had a Morey - Pope Tracker it surfed fairly well most of it was the light glassing and Greenough fin soft rails a bit to much vee. OK for beach breaks. I read that Mctavish later did think to much of them. But he's thinking evolved I guess.
