Dane is saying,"I am not a competitive surfer; I’m a surfer."
Interestingly when I think of Dane Reynolds’ I often, not always, but often, I think of the Club Sandwich turn he threw down at Haleiwa a few years ago during the REEF Hawaiian Pro competition.
In Chapter 11 and other video clips Dane Reynolds has undoubtedly surfed freer, expressed himself more deeply, and more sincerely. But will history look back on Dane’s legacy and point to the Club Sandwich at Haleiwa as his Sistine Chapel? Or, more likely, and like Michelangelo, will Dane’s legacy include many works of art with the Club Sandwich at Haleiwa being one of the highlights in a fine list of waves surfed
Gives you a good dose of stoke and some insight into where Dane Reynolds mind is at right now.
