Dane Reynolds Is Not Suing Quiksilver.

“I still don’t quite understand why people think that there’s a lawsuit,” says Dane.

Yesterday, a domino effect rippled through the internet: Dane Reynolds is suing Quiksilver! Numerous portals reported on the news. Even Reuters posted an article titled Pro Surfer and former sponsor Quiksilver in gnarly fight over deal (though, thankfully, it didn’t make it to their 2.7m Facebook pals). The story? That Dane was owed $3.59m by his former family, due to a breach of contract around Quik not removing Dane from promotional material quick enough, post-departure.

However, it simply isn’t true. And as it turns out, this whole storm grew from the misreading of some legal proceedings.

“There is no dispute between Dane and Quiksilver,” says Dane’s manager, Blair Marlin. “A termination agreement was signed several months ago between both parties and the bankruptcy court is just now getting to it. Once the court approves the document, the claim will be dismissed.”

Rather black and white, yes? But, how does Dane feel? Understandably, not thrilled.

“There is definitely no lawsuit,” Dane told Stab. “Blair called me two days ago and was like, are you in a lawsuit? I was like, er, I don’t think so? Am I gonna get served right now or something? A reporter had called him about a lawsuit, so he went and figured out exactly what was going on. I still don’t quite understand why people think that there’s a lawsuit. Everyone’s been texting me screenshots of this shit all day.”

“It’s embarrassing to me, and a bummer, the idea that I’d be trying to milk Quiksilver for more worth,” Dane continues. “Trying to milk them for money owed is not something that I would do. We parted on good terms, there’s no bad blood, and I’m definitely not trying to milk them for money.”

The internet, eh.
