Board of the Day: Lost Taj Burrow Whiplash

Whiplash 4

 

Hey Crew, back with another installment of board of the day (although it should probably be called something else given that there aint a new one every day)… Anyway, the more astute and interent savvy amongst you would have noticed that a while back Taj – arguably the best surfer not to win a world title…yet – switched up his equipment and began riding some Mayhem boards at the end of 2011. Success quickly followed with Taj winning the first WCT event of 2012 on the Gold Coast before winning again at Steamer Lane in the second last WCT event of the year. To cut a long story short, Taj has been ripping on his Mayhems and now that he is pretty much exclusively surfing boards from Matty Biolos, Lost have brought out a couple of new models bearing Taj’s name, one of which is the TB Whiplash. This board is so new that they have only just announced its existence on the Lost website (check here for some awesome surfing from the man himself: http://www.lostsurfboards.net/2013/lost-tv-whiplash-x-taj/ ). The TB Whiplash aint for everyone though: this board is not one of those ‘paddles well’ high volume boards with flat rocker and boxy rails. The board has continuous rocker with a really refined template. This board will literally do whatever you want but you need to be paddle fit and capable of generating speed on your own. If you are after a high performance shorty for good quality waves and want to rip then this is the board that might just change your life! We have the only two in stock in Australia, direct from the Lost factory in San Clemente, CA. (5’11 x 18 1/4 x 2 1/8 FCS and 5’11 x 18 1/2 x 2 1/4 Futures [pictured] are both in store and available now). While we are on the subject of Lost, stay tuned for details of how to win yourself one of Julian Wilson’s own Mayhem boards…
