The “Sabo-Taj” is the result of ongoing design development between Taj Burrow and Matt Biolos. Meant to perform in the widest range of conditions by minimalistic means and be a one board travel weapon for Taj. The Sabo-Taj is equally at home in powerful Indo reef waves, punchy beach breaks, compact slabs, lined up points and energized waves of any kind.
“After years of building travel boards for quality waves I feel like this is thebest one yet” - Matt Biolos.
The outline features a wider than average nose with enough area under foot to be surfed fast and radical in everyday waves while the narrow tail tip holds in solid surf and barrels. The nose rocker is modest for speed and drive and the tail rocker has plenty of curve for tight radius whip and control. A slight concave between the feet adds lift but zeros out in the nose to keep things catch free and a mild double concave cuts through the tail rocker adding speed and drive. This board screams take me to Mexico or Indo all summer, Hatteras and Europe in the fall, Hawaii all winter and doesn’t mind staying close to home if it's pumping. Let’s go!
TECHNOLOGICALLY TOUGHER - ENVIRONMENTALLY NICER!
We love surfing and surfboards but... traditional surf construction is delicate and the build process is toxic and unhealthy… we knew there had to be a better way. 12 years ago, Mike Olson set out to make a stronger, longer lasting more environmentally friendly surfboard. He applied his 30 plus years of experience handcrafting and riding high performance composite surf, skate and snowboards to the task. In the process, he completely rewrote the book on surfboard construction. Each of the 31 pieces used to construct our ECO IMPACTO surfboards are new materials to the surf industry. Our unique Thermo Pressure Fusion Process creates an amazingly durable, environmentally friendly, high performance surf structure that frees your mind and lifts your surfing to new heights.
All of our boards are handcrafted in the USA near Canada.
