In a new Stab series called “The Joy of Fear”, Mark Matthews explores the idea of fear with pro-surfers. Once you get past the ominous, pseudo-introspective beginning, the Taj episode is fairly interesting. It’s basically just the two of them shooting the shit about things that scare them, then they surf.
Taj states, “[His] biggest fear at the moment are sharks.” I didn’t even think pro-surfers thought about sharks like that. I think about sharks like that. Nice to know Taj is there with me.
