Taylor Knox is one of the most iconic surfers of all time. Hailing from Carlsbad, CA, TK is renown for his powerful technique and style, and has been a permanent fixture on the World Championship Tour for almost two decades

At age fifteen, he suffered a serious back injury while skateboarding that almost jeopardized his dreams of becoming a professional surfer. With the drive and ambition that he continues to credit, Taylor overcame this challenge and came back with a vengeance. In 1997 Taylor won the K2 Big Wave Challenge winning him $50,000. Taylor remains one of the most powerful surfers in the world that many of today’s up and coming pro’s still look up to.

Taylor is currently still competing on the WCT. He is an avid fitness guru using special fitness techniques to keep up his rail-to-rail surfing. Taylor recently helped release a fitness video called “Surf Exercises”. Taylor will continue to surf and train his way to one of the lengthiest professional surfing careers of all time.
