Dane Reynolds

Dane Reynolds' mind-blowing progressive maneuvers and contagiously laid back approach to competition have seemed to make him a favorite amongst his peers and although the Ventura Californian's approach to competition may seem unorthodox, the talented regular-footer's ability to mesh his freakish maneuvers and knack for the lineup saw him finish within the top 10 on the ASP World Tour for 2009.

Proclaimed by many as one of the greatest free-surfing talent to date, Reynolds’ groomed style brought on by the grip of flawless pointbreaks surrounding his nearby home of Ventura have helped mesh his patented aerials with timeless carves to make him one of the worlds most technically well rounded surfers.
