A Classic Read

Epic Surf Movie

Sabotaj – Watch The Classic Taj Burrow Profile Film

Released in 1998, the film arrived in a good year for surf videos made by legendary surf filmmaker Jack McCoy and Billabong with Wide OpenThe Occumentary and Sabotaj all released in the same 12 months (what a golden era!).

With grom footage, his first two years on tour, the best freesurfing footage of him and friends (Rasta, Jake Paterson, Noodles Webster and more) filmed over the course of a year, and of course the legendary Bumbat Challenge – Sabotaj remains one of the great surf profile films.
