Anthony ‘Tazy’ Tashnick’s Bio has some impressive athletic accomplishments to go along with that heater of a wave ride

  • Second youngest surfer to ever paddle into Mavericks, Age 16
  • Youngest surfer to ever win the Mavericks Invitational Surf Comp, Age 20
  • Named “10 most innovative big wave surfers of all time” –             SURFING MAGAZINE

If you’re lucky enough to meet Tazy in the line up, in his hometown of Santa Cruz, the ‘innovation’ he brings to the sport of surfing is self evident

He is an artist, an energetic force of nature.

Tazy seems equally happy surfing the biggest waves in the world, as he is coaching novice surfers like me to just stand up on a board

When he is not bombing Mavericks, Jaws and other big wave breaks around the world, you’ll find Tazy volunteering his time along the California Coast

Tazy works with Operation Surf, teaching Wounded Warriors & Disabled American Vets the sport of surfing

This sports therapy of learning to ‘Bomb Like Tazy’ out on the open ocean is proven therapy from the bombs of wartime.
