Inarguably the most influential surfer of his generation, Dane can’t eat breakfast without being emulated by everyone from full grown adults to pre-teen groms. His lack of interest in “beating people” and disregard for competitive tactics held Dane short of winning a World Title or CT event, but he still managed to place 4th in the 2010 ASP Ratings before leaving competition altogether. Dane’s 2016 release of Chapter 11 stands today as the most candid, first-person look into a surfing icon the public has ever witnessed.
