Taj Burrow won the Hurley Pro Lowers WCT. Johnny Gannon’s juices must have been flowing with the right consistency this event because Taj outsurfed the young Julian Wilson in the final. Taj was riding a new version of his Whiplash model, the Whiplash 14. Its similar to the Taj Whiplash with a newer rocker that is a little flatter through the middle . Our surfboard team manager was able to sneak into the competitors area, like a fly on the wall, and snap these photos.
The marketing department was stuck inside editing the final episode of Here Today Gone to Cabo . We were however watching the webcast and found our vice president of shipping logistics for Lost surfboards, Thunderfoot, drinking the free beer on tap.
