Designed specifically with input and feedback from legendary high performance icon, Taj Burrow. This collaboration stems from the work done to satisfy TBs needs for his trademark brand of razor sharp and explosive, cutting edge surfing. With two World Tour wins (Snapper Rocks and Steamer Lane) in our first full season (2012) of working together, the results more than speak for themselves. Using the classic “Whiplash” model as a starting point, this board has now become the most refined and streamlined design in our line. Originally of TBs winning board from the 2012 Quiksilver Pro (Snapper Rocks) This board has been continuously refined and updated since. This 2015 edition features subtle tweaks based off of Taj and his feedback over the last 12 months. The rocker and outline both have an aggressive, continuous curve , cutting out all the unneeded surface area, thus no hip or bump in front of the fins that most of our boards feature. The nose, while not as needle or narrow as in the past, is still pulled enough to not get in the way of TBs fast and critical, tight radius turns. Although not for everyone, this board is relatively easy to ride and is best for younger and fit surfers who are above average, have no problem creating their own speed, and surf regularly in punchy beach or decent quality point breaks and want to surf as critical and radical as possible. This board will not be stocked, but is a Custom order only, model.
