Taylor Knox Makes Hall of Fame0 comments
Taylor Knox (Carlsbad): Part of 1990's 'New School' crew that replaced the 80's power surfers, Knox was known for his rail-to-rail style of surfing. Taylor won the 1995 U.S. Championship and then led the 1996 American team to victory at the ISA World Surfing Games with his first place finish in the talent-rich men's division. In February 1998, Knox catapulted into the international spotlight by winning the inaugural K2 Big-Wave Challenge, an event that offered $50,000 to the surfer who caught the biggest wave of the winter and had photographic evidence.
