Ninth Annual Taj's Small Fries event

The ninth annual Taj's Small Fries Yallingup kicks off this Friday 17th January with clean winds and no shortage of swell to test some of Australia's hottest junior surfing talent set to compete.

The specialty event for boys and girls aged 16 and under officially launches the Surfing WA 2014 events calendar, with ASP world # 5 Taj Burrow on hand to mentor the young competitors.

"It's the one thing I look forward to every year," Burrow said.

"I love surfing with all the kids when I come home, but when they all collectively come together and get to throw on a rash vest and surf against each other is really cool to watch!" He said.
