Taj recently won the QS1000 Komune Bali Pro presented by The Mad Hueys at Keramas. The waves were a perfect 3-4 feet and rippable. Taj took down Aussie grom Ethan Ewing, who was ripping the entire event. The 1st place trophy was presented in true Mad Huey fashion in the form of a “shoey”. Check out the video below to see the presentation.
