A Shortaj of Clips – Dane and Taj in LA

You probably saw the story next to this one on our homepage, called Two Lousy Days In LA With Dane Reynolds And Taj Burrow. It was a photo essay, of sorts, photographed by Morgan Maassen. Now, here’s what was filmed on the day. There was a shortage of footage, according to Dane, but after watching this clip, we respectfully disagree. Luckily, after a re-watch, Dane changed his mind and posted the clip on his site, Summer Teeth, with these words:

“i tried really hard to come up with something sweet that cleverly used the name taj, but i think they’re all used up. i considered ‘hostaj’ but no, at least ‘shortaj’ makes sense cause the video’s a little chinsy on clips.

taj was in california for the us open, and i warned him that the waves were going to be bad, that we should probably try to shoot in orange county for this stab thing, but he ignored my warnings and drove up. it was really bad. the footage doesn’t show you the half hour lulls. when he walked down the beach the groms started arguing about if it was really him. then he paddled out and they shot silent glances back and forth when he got close enough to be certain. it was a fun day, but we decided to head to lowers to finish the stab thing. taj got some sick ones but they got posted on the internet like 2 days later. bleh. so i told stab we didn’t have enough for a video. i saw the stab article so i re-watched the video and it’s actually not so bad. the song is sweet. it’s ‘fit and working again’ from the fall.”

        How can it have never been funny yet isn’t funny ‘anymore’. But as a perpetrator of early successful Tiago jokes, its being used way too much now.

    I had a similar experience. I was at uppers on a cold, wintery, somewhat rainy day and there were only about 10 dudes out. Some taj looking imposter comes paddling out and I was looking at him like he was a taj wanna-be. On his first wave I just see him pumping really hard and he never got through the foam to the shoulder. Then I see the take Taj paddle for another wave and I’m watching from behind….all is chilled….then about 30 feet down the line on the same wave I see him pop out the back like a great white hitting a seal….rotation…lip smash….lip smash….spray…..spray…..spray….Oh yes Taj was in town the day….
