Stars flock to Yallingup for wedding rematch!
Last December, the retired pro surfer Taj Burrow married his baby mama, the former Bondi model Rebecca Jobson, in a remarkably modest ceremony.
Modest, because as anyone who’s ever circled in his orbit knows, the forty-year-old owner of a beer company ain’t afraid of a good time.
And, as a man who put pals before world titles, before…winning…it ain’t a stretch to call him the most popular surfer, among his peers, and fans, of all time.
On Saturday, pals flew in from around the world, including grammy-award nominated DJ FISHER (who would forget his passport and miss his private plane home), nightclub wrangler Shane Moran, Stab founder Sam McIntosh, photographer John Respondek and trainer-to-the-stars John Gannon, for a wedding rematch at Black Brewery Co in Wilyabrup, Western Australia.
Right about now is where we cue up a few of Chris Rock’s married jokes.
“Those are the choices you’ve got in life, man. You can be married and bored, or single and lonely. Ain’t no happiness nowhere.”
“Whenever I go out with other married couples, I like to bring along a single crackhead. Just spicing up the activities. ‘Come on, tell us some of your cracky tales, please!’ ”
“Fellas, once you get married you become your wife’s pet. Cause women like to get their husbands together, that don’t even know each other, and have like a grown-man play date. Put you in a room with some other married motherfucker, and go ‘he likes baseball just like you’. Then you’re in some room with some fucking stranger, going ‘I like baseball.'”
It don’t gotta be like that, and a man like Tez, who’s seen it all and eaten most of it up, was never going to marry poorly.
“Reflecting on the wild wild cards that are on my table right now and going into the new year knowing that nothing matters more than the wonderful people you surround yourself with. Hold those close to you and hold them tight, tell them you love them 150 times a day and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Like sitting on a grassy hill by the ocean, sipping a gin and tonic with your nearest and dearest and watching the waves and the clouds roll in,” Jobson wrote after that first ceremony, which was held so her sick mom, who has now passed away, could see her daughter get married. “Life is one crazy ride and I’m so lucky to be surrounded by the best breed of humans. Thank you for looking after me when I need it most. Be safe everyone, hoping you have a ground breaking earth shaking 2019.”
