One decade ago, a clip of Taj Burrow surfing Lower Trestles would be the most exhilarating thing you’d see all year. And in the year 2013, while Kelly Slater blows out 41 candles and stays on top, a clip of Taj Burrow surfing Lower Trestles is still pretty fucking awesome. Taj took a slightly different route through the whole “aging” thing than Kelly did, and it was a route that involved a lot less pomegranate seeds a lot more fermented beverages. Frankly, Taj had more fun. And now, at 35 years of age, Taj is still winning events and still putting out edits that are worth four minutes of your undivided attention. Watch Taj warm up and blaze through Lowers, then maybe throw out your kale. You won’t be needing it anymore.
