“I’ve seen Shaun surf since he was just a little grom, like 10, 11 years old. I remember he was doing my contest, Small Fries, and I always thought he was such a cool grom. Never really thought he surfed that well, but just thought he was a cool kid. And then he’s just one of those talents that kinda came on late, I feel like, in the last 3 to 4 years. He’s just come in so hot and he just blows my mind. I just can’t believe how good he actually surfs right now. He’s incredible! And I just would have never picked it, I always just thought he was the kind of cool kid that surfed alright, had a good style. But yeah, next minute, he is just fucking charging the biggest pits and doing the biggest airs I think of anyone." – Taj Burrow
