    HA stoked on the ideas.

    Folks, the physical design of the board and the name are different. We guarantee that you will be able to get a World Tour ready board in our tech as long as we are around. It may not be the "Taj" model, but we are ready to move past it.

    keep in mind, Taj and Firewire grew together out of the ashes. We had a Taj model because he was an integral part of our ascension. There are inherent complexities in such a growth pattern and if the athlete doesn't want his/her name used, we have to oblige. Seriously though don't worry. We have stuff in the pipeline that will make everyone happy.

    Cheers!!!

                    Taj was surfing a FireWire Taj at Margs today. Got through his heat.

                        they will say how shaky he looked...because he did look shaky. BUT Taj will continue experimenting with all kinds of boards this year.

                        Anyone hear Occy say that he and the judges like that he's off of Firewire? That's really good when announcers are saying the ASP judges are influenced by board choice.

                          I guess when the ASP is controlled by the industry that's what you're up against.

                                We all love Occy, but he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. To counterbalance those comments (which I didn't hear) I've heard Occy in particular on many occasions rave about how good Firewires are. Most recently he couldn't shut up about the great Firewire "Philipino" Toledo was riding. I was wondering whether Occy himself was switching to Firewire he seemed so excited. I'm sure I've heard him rave about Taj's Firewire boards before. I wouldn't read too much into what Occy says.

                                Anyway, if there was a grand judging conspiracy against Firewire the judges aren't doing that great a job. 2 of the top 10 ranked surfers from last year were on Firewire. Taj reached two or three finals last year on Firewires. Filipino just reached the final of the MR Pro in Newcastle and the judges scores would have seen him win but for a pretty stupid drop in/intereference on his part. I did see one wave from that Margs heat and Taj did seem to be having issues with his board....just couldn't get his feet in the right spot, presumably because he hasn't been surfing it as much lately.
