Taylor Knox Retires at Age 41
Leader of the original Momentum crew, and what many call “the best rail-to-rail surfer in the world” T-Knox is hanging up his singlet after 20 years on the elite world tour. Taylor Knox spent the last couple season surfing against pros who weren’t even born when Taylor joined the pro tour.
The Hall of Famer now resides in Carlsbad where he manages his new Craft Brewing enterprise Saint Archer, enjoys life as a newlywed and father, then continues to pursue surf travel for video parts. Follow him on Instagram to check up on the power surfing icon.
After his retirement party at the Haleiwa Cafe, he enjoyed a homecoming at he and Kerzy’s favorite joint, Fish 101. So if you’re ever in C-Bad, stop in for the dankest fish tacos you’ve ever had, and you might get to rap out with a local legend.
One of Taylor’s secrets to his long successful careers was working with his sponsors to develop high-performance gear. In doing so, Taylor overcame injuries that doctors said would end his career.
