Dane believes surfing is the best outlet to true happiness. Coming from a person in the 99th percentile of positive minds, we’ll take that advice to heart. Although his twin brother Pat and younger brother Tanner also sprouted into pro surfers, Dane took a different route. He’s constantly seeking swells and exploration around the earth instead of the common theme of chasing competition. Twenty years from now Dane hopes to be on the same path as today, still sendin’ it, just with a boatload more knowledge and experience. He and his brothers have started the Positive Vibe Warriors which is a non-profit that gives back to the surf community.
