Yes, the 37-year-old surfing legend is calling it a career.
As some of you know I was lucky enough to be involved in Taj's career, Training and travelling together for the past 8 years where he won numerous events. I will be sad to see him go but wish him and his family all the best in the future!
Taj's main reason for the sudden retirement was the arrival of his and partner Bec Jobson's daughter Arabella Rose "I felt like I had too much going on. With the birth of my baby, there's been a lot of sleepless nights and I don't have [former trainer] Johnny Gannon in my corner cracking the whip and I just haven't been able to keep up. Everything's been going too fast and I've been going into events not prepared. It's no fun going into events half-assed and not giving it my all, it's been making me upset and stressed." he said.
