A compelling insight into the minds of perennial title threats Taj Burrow and Josh Kerr, two surfers who know how to enjoy life but still retain that burning desire to win.
Both Aussies are busy preparing for The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro, the first time this event has been on the big boys tour and just a few clicks from Yallingup, Taj’s homestead. Expect a big gutsy performance from Burrow on familiar water and for Kerr to line up some high fives with the moon once the dependable Fremantle Doctor kicks in (afternoon onshores).
Perhaps the most surprising insight is that Taj loves Mexican food so much trainer Johnny Gannon calls him Taj Burrito and they’ve been on the Paleo diet for five years. Here’s recipe for Paleo burritos.
