[Bespoke Graphic with This Info]

Waves: Rocky Point, four foot and pretty rippable.”

Surfer: Dane Reynolds

Age: 34

Size: 6’1, 190lbs.

Board: Channel Islands Neck Beard 2

Dims: 5’9 x 20 x 2/14

Example Intro/Instagram Copy: With a brief lull between massive winter blasts, we caught a glimpse of Dane Reynolds at Rocky Point hucking air after air off the original Occy’s Left ramps and into the tradewinds on a revised take on his famous chopped-tailed Channel Islands Neck Beard, rightly named the Neck Beard 2, and had to get the skinny on that fresh fat tail.
