Free Surfboard: Enter to win Taj’s Sharp Eye from Stab In The Dark

Just like in the movies (and Taj picks the two Stab Premium giveaways).

Words by stab

Even if you’ve yet to watch the latest Stab in the Dark, you’ve likely realized that Taj’s boards were different than in years past.

This time around, we asked the shapers to send through simple blanks, which is to say: no glass, no finish, nothing but the foam they came in on. We then gave all of Taj’s 13 boards to Dark Arts Surf, who sealed them up with their proprietary carbon wrap construction, which are made to be unbelievably light and strong. 

Taj said it best himself, “These boards really don’t dent.” 

Seeing as he is the first Stab In The Dark star not to break a board, we’d say that’s right on the money.

We’re giving away an exact replica of Taj’s winning pick: The Sharp Eye Surfboards’ Disco Inferno along with a healthy pack of Globe Apparel. While we can’t promise it will make you surf/look like Taj, we can ensure that this will be the toughest, sleekest board you’ve ever owned.

HOW TO ENTER: Simply click here, give us your email and tell us why you feel you deserve a shiny new Dark Arts x Sharp Eye sled. The entries will be sifted through with a medium-toothed comb and the winner will have the board shipped to their desired address free of charge.


An update for our beloved Premies: Taj has selected the winners via the comments of our Episode 4 post. We are pleased to announce Finn Buckley and Michael Yanakus (Mik) have officially won! Congratulations to them on their eye-catching comments. Check your inboxes to collect your board(s) from Stab In The Dark!
