The best of Dane, Lowers Trestles
He may be the ASP’s dancing bear but no one on tour gives post heat interviews like Dane Reynolds. Here’s some of his best work: “I want to make it so you can’t win a world title without surfing that way,” he told Stab after stomping then world title contender and favourite for the Quiksilver […]
He may be the ASP’s dancing bear but no one on tour gives post heat interviews like Dane Reynolds. Here’s some of his best work:
“I want to make it so you can’t win a world title without surfing that way,” he told Stab after stomping then world title contender and favourite for the Quiksilver Pro Coolangatta, Joel Parkinson.
“It should be the wave of the decade to get a [a perfect score],” he said after the same heat when asked whether any of his performance defining waves deserved a ten out of ten.
“It doesn’t feel natural doing that. I feel aggressive on the wave,” was Dane’s reply when asked whether a employing a more conservative approach at times would enhance his chances of winning a world title. Then adding, “A world title isn’t a goal of mine, right now.”
“I was nervous about Kolohe…I hate surfing against younger kids. When I surf against someone like (Chris) Davo I know what to expect. Kolohe can do huge moves and that’s usually my deal against other guys,” Dane told the ASP after trouncing American super grom, Kolohe Andino. Could a kid receive a better endorsement from his idol?
“Shit, I felt pretty good (out there). I don’t make airs like that every day,” said Dane after nailing a Slob air reverse on one wave and a tweaked finner to hook on the next for the highest combined total of the recent Hurley Pro Trestles, event.
“I was totally mindfucked. I lost the mental picture of surfing a wave well and from then on I was done. Two minutes in I knew I was gonna lose. I was defeated from the first bobble,” was Dane’s reasoning for losing to Bede Durbidge in the semi-final of the Hurley Pro, Trestles.- Jed Smith
