  • Taj Pro Model

    The TAJ Pro Model is built to Taj's exact specs taken from his favorite 5'11" and 6'0" Firewire surfboards, incorporating the identical rail volumes, bottom contours, SPRINGER and increased rocker that are a trademark of his equipment. TAJ Pro Model boards are lightning fast boards with an incredibly tight turning radius.

      well the Taj doesn't quite look like that one anymore....

      the springer isn't outlined and the logo placement has been tweaked a bit per his request...

        Any idea which, if any, of the changes to the Taj, ie. logo placements, fuller rails, jet pack, will be present on my board? The fuller rails are the main bit I'm interested in, but the jet pack would help my air game also.

            haha stoked on the jet pack. if it's possible to find out regarding the rails that'd be cool, but I'm guessing I'll be able to notice when I get it and if I can't it's probably so minor that only Taj knows anyway or it has the older rails.

              Chris,

              The Taj Pro has been removed off the Firewire site......does this mean that it is no longer available?

              Regards
              Fazza

                Looks like it Fazza
                Could be the end of an era
                Have to be stoked on what he's done to help FireWire boards though regardless of what he chooses to ride in the future
                And vice versa

                  Yes for sure Wandi........just thought Firewire said that his boards would still be available even though he was not exclusively riding for FW.

                  looks like we have a collectors item........

                    Shame. Maybe it will be reintroduced but with a different model name, or available as a special order?

                      Hey all, since Taj is no longer under contract we can't be building boards with his name on it.

                      We'll have something else down the road but for now it's not going to be sold anymore.

                      Cheers!

                          But you could keep building them and not put the Taj sticker on. They'd be even lighter!

                          I guess Al Merrick had the right idea by making particular models for each of his pro surfers, but not naming the model after them. That way, if the surfer leaves the stable, he doesn't have to stop selling popular boards that he designed.

                            You guys at firewire can pull a Prince and call it "The board formerly known as Taj." Then when it becomes even bigger in reputation you can just name it some weird symbol. Then when Taj is back on board you can call it the Taj again.

                              Agree with sarge, seeing as the CBD taj is adjusted from the stock. It actually is no longer the original board therefore it can have a different name or logo placed on it. The Taj came from his favourite webber shape anyway. The shape can't be patented just the construction technology.
                              If FW are smart, when they add the Michel to the CDB program they should call the board "the Spartan" they could use the same helment logo, as i believe they designed it, and just replace his name with the spartan. Again if the board is altered in the CDB then it is no longer the same signature model, and therefore would have contractual obligations attached to it. It could even be offered with fcs setup too
                              This way if by any chance Michel is no longer contracted by FW, then the board can be continued to be made with no hitches.
                              Maybee FW should run a comp to rename the Taj model, and re-release it as the new renamed model.
