After the Snapper event, everyone was blown away by the performances put on by Firewire team riders Taj Burrow and Michel Bourez. Heading into Bells, both surfers sit in the top 10 and are poised to have an impact on the title race as the year unfolds. This means I am counting down the days, like a kid before Christmas, until the next event kicks off. Legend Nick Carroll had some big things to say about their performances as well in Surfline’s Power Rankings which prompted a reader to leave an epic comment that warrants a high five if I ever meet its author (see below). Oh yeah, there is some good video of Taj going off as well. Insane!
Can’t wait until the boys hit the water in Victoria for the Rip Curl Pro, but in the meantime, we’re stoked to see that people are taking notice of the boards and their riders. If you own one, get out and have a session. If not, find a demo center and try one.
