Many of you may already know Creed with accolades under his belt including former U/18 Australian Champion (2010), Runner-up U/16 Australian Titles (2009), and former winner of Taj’s Small Fries, Occy Grom Comp and Grom Search, but 18-year Australian surfer Creed McTaggart is just starting.
Get a sense of Creed’s surfing in a latest video, The Black & White Edits, which is a beautiful display of Creed’s surfing.
According to a review by Surfing Magazine: “Before the Hipster Police arrive and draw their weapons, allow us to forewarn. Yes, this entire edit is in black and white. Yes, it is pervaded with lifestyle clips. And yes, there are grainy film filters. But if any of that bothers you, maybe you should take a step back and look at the actual surfing. Creed’s got one of the best styles in the game and we ain’t talking hairdos. The slob at 1:54 is a good example of his skatey panache. Like Mason Ho, Creed is often a tracktop-less wonder. As the clip comes of age, we see Creed comboing bowls without the help of a kicktail. It’s enough to have even the sergeant of the HP surrender his badge, buy a fedora and become a fan of all things Creed McTaggert.”
We couldn’t agree more. The surfing is pretty rad and breathtaking… Creed is pretty inspired as he thrashes his way around Western Australia, jamming turns and airs in every possible pocket. It’s no wonder why he is by far one of the best 18 year olds in the world today.
