To help launch the official start of the Going Vertical In Byron Bay sweepstakes for a trip for two to Byron Bay Australia, Aussie surf legend Bob McTavish (pictured left) held a meet and greet with 100 local surf fans at the International Surf Museum in Huntington Beach this week. Bob signed copies of his book, "Stoked" and visitors were treated to a sneak peak of the new surf documentary starring McTavish, Going Vertical, which premiers at the Anaheim Film Festival this week.
