Andreini via McTavish

It’s a day ending in ‘y’, so it must be time to celebrate the legend that is Marc Andreini at Shred Sledz HQ. I came across this sweet-looking vehicle, which can be found on Craigslist in Los Angeles.

The poster describes it as a “McVee” shape, which I have never seen before from Andreini. I’m guessing the name is a portmanteau that refers to the vee bottom of the board, famously invented by Aussie shaper Bob McTavish during the shortboard revolution. The dims are 8’8″ x 22.75″ x 3″, and I imagine this thing has got a ton of paddling power. I’ve always wanted to try one of these vee bottom boards to see how they turn, and I guess I’ll just have to wait my chance.

$850 takes the board (poster claims it has only been surfed twice, and it certainly looks shiny in all the pics). Find it here.
