In the new 21Days, we ride shotgun with Julian Wilson and Taj Burrow in the lead-up to the Hurley Pro at Lowers. Now in his third year on tour, Jules is coming off an event win in Ballito, followed by a fifth at the Billabong Pro, Tahiti. With a new travel partner, his gal Ashley, the Sunny-Coaster is feeling relaxed and kinda dangerous. He swings into his hometown for a few days of downtime before swooping into the assault to the senses that is LA.
Taj is a perennial world top five surfer who sips from the elixir of eternal youth, and is lethal at any event. He’s currently sitting at number five, and believes that since he now has the right trainer in his corner, that being Johnny Gannon, he might be able to move on up. Taj stops by Sydney on his way to Cali, has a quick session in the gym and stops by to see your old pals at Stab.
Stay tuned for episode two, dropping shortly.
