Taj Burrow And Co. Navigate South Africa's Rugged Tip
"One of the best trips of my life.” - Taj Burrow
It takes a fair bit to tickle the fancy of a grizzled old pro. Long, reeling points, slabby pits and shark scares ticked the boxes for Taj on what he’s calling “one of the best trips of my life.”
In the latest dispatch from the Billabong Adventure Division, Taj and fellow Bong rippers Shaun Manners, Jaleesa Vincent and Matt Bromley get after it in “The Cape.” Wandering the edge of the African continent, they get into a little bit of everything as the elements guide their way.
Freezing water and howling offshores are one thing, but during one session when a bodyboarder yelled, “Shark!” the dynamic changed as the hunters quickly turned into the hunted. Everybody made it to the beach safely, but the session was cut short for good reason.
Taj reckons the Cape zone a lot like his stomping grounds back in West Oz, but a hair gnarlier. If it is adventure you seek, dive in!
