I heard a news report liast night that Taj got a board flown in from OZ for the Chopes event…
Seemed to be a bit of an emergency…
It was the one he won on at Bells…
It’s making me wonder what’s happening with his new equipment, not good enough, or was the board one of those magic ones he can’t let go of…
Bert, Speedy, Greg can you shed some light on this?
watching heat now
guess its cuz the waves are small
yep he took boards that were too big. he flew in shorter boards for the tiny surf.
Looks like he knew what he was doing.
Chris Ward also won his heat on a quad after
he broke his thuster on the reef.
Interesting contest even tho its small!!!
i just heard cory lopez beat taj on a placebo surfboard.
can anyone verfiy this?
Was that 0.13 seconds or vibe ?
No need to answer, I already know
Pretty close then, just a nose on the micro accurate vibemeter scale, amazing tech these days, opinion to 2 decimal places !
yeah strange stuff
he looked like he dominated the heat
his surfing was on fire but corey got the good waves
it was a very close heat
i am a bit biased though
Waves were wayyyy smaller that was expected. He flew in a couple small wave boards.
