VENTURA, California/USA (Tuesday, June 21, 2011) – Dane Reynolds (USA), 25, progressive surfing innovator and stalwart member of the ASP Top 34, has been out this season, rehabilitating a knee injury sustained last season in Hawaii. While the surfing world awaits his return to competition, Reynolds has been re-familiarizing himself with the sport via trips to Central and South America. Amidst the rehab and training, Reynolds recently signed with ASP’s Hawaiian Triple Crown sponsor Vans for all his footwear needs. This…is their story…
We are extremely excited to announce the addition of Dane Reynolds to the Vans Surf Team. Dane is one of the most exciting and unique surfers to date and brings a quiet sort of revolution with him. His approach is completely different to what’s been done and his reach touches every facet of surfing. For decades Vans has been home for people choosing their own path and it’s a pleasure to be able to uphold that principle to this day and have Dane become a part of it.
The 25 year-old from Ventura, CA has already made his mark on the ASP World Tour with Top 10 final rankings in both 2009 (10th) and 2010 (4th) – just his second and third years on tour, but Dane is much more than a contest surfer. When a surfer is described as straddling the demands of the pro tour while simultaneously establishing himself as a top free surf talent, perhaps no one reaches such heights in both worlds as the ultra-talented and creative Dane Reynolds.
In addition to Vans, Dane is sponsored by Quiksilver wetsuits and clothing, Channel Islands surfboards and accessories and Ventura Surf Shop.
