Taj Burrow recently had his first child, a baby girl named Arabella Rose. She’s perfect just like her mommy and daddy. But this piece features the new dad doing what he’s done better than anyone we’ve ever had the pleasure of watching for over two decades: having fun surfing. No one has shown this and reminded us of this more and done it with raw, grace, smiles and passion more than papa Taj. And we fucking love Taj for it. Consider this our own little B-sides tribute to him, maybe riffing on Seven Days, Seven Slaves trip from his youth. But mostly just amping on his enthusiasm and what a rad dad and surfer he is. Thanks Taj.
