Creed McTaggart, not your average shredder!
Margaret River is a unique place that produces all types of surfer – soul guy, comp guy, big wave guy, future guy – and Creed McTaggert’s act tends to have a bit of each.
There’s a purity about Creed’s approach that is alluring. It’s his timing, maybe, and cleanly defined lines that make his surfing easy to watch.
He gave up on the comp scene sometime around 2011, despite notching up a string of titles that suggested he was headed for a successful open career. But now CreedΓÇÖs really found his groove, itΓÇÖs all about chasing good waves and doing something different, should the occasion call for it.
One thing Creed is keeping alive is the big forehand, stalefish grab straight air ΓÇô just like Ozzie Wright nailed consistently in Seven Days, Seven Slaves - kid does ΓÇÖem in his sleep.
Oh, and another thing: ΓÇ£People think IΓÇÖm really good at guitar, because every photo IΓÇÖm in, I seem to have I have a guitar in my hand. But IΓÇÖm shit. Make sure you tell people that.ΓÇ¥
