Watch: Taj Burrow “Politely Clear His Path” At Lance’s

Sharing is daring.

Words by stab

Andy Irons, Gabriel Medina, Joel Parkinson and Chris Ward are some of the worst professional surfers to share (or have shared) a lineup with. They roam the lineup like apex predators, and they are. On the other side, guys like Dane Reynolds and Taj Burrow are notably unaggressive.

This morning we posted this clip that Taj sent us from Lance’s Left to our Instagram featuring him, as he put it, “politely clearing my path.” It’s the best thing we’ve seen today. And, because an estimated 70 percent of Instagram posts go unseen, we’re just going to leave this here.

As social media’s become the go-to platform for wit and absolute nonsense, some of surfing’s finest took to our feed to share their thoughts. Read them below:

And then there was this… Which earned the dull, dime-sized medal for the “R. You. Kidding. Me?” Category. To which we say, “Uh, cool…”
