Dane Reynolds is easily one of the best surfers in the world. Nobody would argue differently, but that being said, he probably won't ever win a world title. He is just not a competitor. He evidently hated little league as a kid, so I guess it's no surprise that he hates competitive surfing as an adult. The whole idea makes no sense to him and he is misquoted almost ever month in every surfing magazine out there just trying to explain this.
But Dane just laughs at it all. He is a super smart kid, with a refreshing take on what it means to surf for a living and how lucky he is to be able to do that. This episode is basically me having a cup of coffee with Dane and letting him vent about filming for videos, the pressure to compete, and riding twin fins and sponges.
