Taj's Small Fries Officially Open For Business in Yallingup
TRIGG BEACH WA/AUS - Surfers from all corners of Australasia met yesterday in Yallingup, WA for the official opening ceremony of the 10th anniversary of Taj's Small Fries.
Over 100 junior surfers are set to compete in the prestigious three-day event, which will kick off in Yallingup tomorrow. Competitors and families gathered in mass to surprise event host and surfing legend, Taj Burrow with a customised birthday cake to celebrate the occasion.
After missing out on the recent Hawaiian winter due to shoulder surgery, Burrow has been spending his out of the water busily planning the 10th instalment of is Small Fries junior surfing event.
The specialty event officially launches Surfing Western Australia's competition program for 2015, but unlike standard events, one of the world's best surfers will be on hand to mentor the grommets competing in a spectrum of divisions including 12 & under, 14 & under, as well the blue ribbon 16 & under, catering for both boys and girls.
A win at Taj's Small Fries is regarded as a major step in a surfer's competitive career with the list of past winners including South-West locals Creed McTaggart (Margaret River), Jacob Willcox (Margaret River) and Jack Robinson (Margaret River) who are now internationally renowned surfers in their own rights.
