Hailing from San Diego, CA, Taylor grew up with a passion for riding any type of surf craft that he could get his hands on. At the age of 13, he fell in love with Longboarding and since then he has become one of the most successful and dominant competitive Longboarders in the World today. Over the course of his career, and with many more years to go, he has racked up 3 WSL World Longboard Titles, 6 North American National Titles, 3 Australasian National Titles and over 50 professional career victories along the way.
When he’s not chasing swells and contests all over the globe, Taylor spends his downtime with his wife Nava and daughter Jagger, splitting their time between the beaches of San Diego, CA and the Far North Coast of NSW, Australia.
Taylor Jensen has won three longboard world championships, with back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012, and a third in 2017. Throughout his career, he has competed on his signature model, the TJ Pro shaped by Dan Mann, which is available in Firewire Timbertek, and will be available in Thunderbolt Black (carbon fiber) and Red (Xeon fiberglass) starting in April. To get us hyped up for the release of this high-performance longboard in Thunderbolt, we invited Taylor Jensen himself to come into the shop and talk us through the dimensions and design.
Mark Nelson founded Carve Sports, Inc. / VERITAS SURFCRAFT in 2014. Since that time, Mark and his team have partnered with Yu Sumitomo of Thunderbolt Technologies, and elite longboard surfers including CJ Nelson, Harley Ingleby, and Ben Skinner.
