Molded epoxy  boards by Bob McTavish.
Decal/Sticker, right contributed by
Scott Randall, Mornington. Victoria
April 2007.
Scott reported
"... Pro Circuit Boards, Bob McTavish’s well conceived, but poorly designed attempt at mass produced “pop-outs”. The precursor to Surftech. *FYI, in a weird twist of circumstance, I worked for Bob during that time doing artwork on boards. But I grew up riding Seatrend Surfboards, brought to us by Randy French of Santa Cruz, who would later perfect mass produced boards in Surftech."
