‘THIS IS DANE REYNOLDS’ is part of a documentary series by french action sports lifestyle mag Desilusion. they call it a documentary but it’s more conceptual than that (moping around the north shore getting introspective about my surf career isn’t really what i do, if you know what i mean<(‘o’<)) if you look through the archives (what a list!) you’ll see the pattern i’m talking about… but regardless it’s a cool series, and i’m honored to have been selected as part of it. CHEK it OUt i’m gonna post some of the other vids out of the series below —–> (leaving out trouble andrews cause that dude seems like a kookK) (っ◔◡◔)っ ♥

too early to reference the 00′s? dunno but the limp bizkit part is amazing and so is andrew’s surfing. super raw and weird.aha, and the 90′s are so hot right now. i hate the title but the surfing is some of the gnarliest shit i’ve ever seen. sorta polar opposite to andrew’s, just pure physical ability, super athletic. both these parts make me amped to go tear the shit out of some waves… still waiting on a sore knee.

oh, and i’ve been backing up and organizing the catacombs of mini’s hard drives, an arduous job, and watching old videos, and wanted to repost some that didn’t make it to the new site when we renovated it a few years ago – here they  are- i think they aged well for web clips.this one was never released… trying an mtf at the queenanother one session one – feeling silly on valentines dayoh shit! i’ll take it waaayyy back to another one sessioner   ok enough for now

omg this shit is hilarious. this was back when michael crawley was running the show at quiksilver. he bought me some coachella tickets and i was like ‘ohhh great ok so i guess we’re going to coachella’ and granted we had fun, saw some bands play from 1/2 mile away and cooked in the beer garden, watched lots of kids on drugs acting a fool, and australians! australians love drugs and music festivals and dressing like native americans. i swear it was 2/3rd’s australians. but crawley’s motivations were clear 1. party 2. product shoot. so since partying took up most of the weekend, we stopped on the way home to shoot product stuff… windmills look cool! perfect! snap a few pics shoot a roll of super 8 bam new quiksilver campaign.

then on the backend, i wanted to use this short instrumental from the band MAN MAN, but quik didn’t want to pay for rights so they had someone engineer a similar song just off the copyright infringement rule, but it sucked so last minute i recorded a riff i made up on the guitar in garage band and had courtney say the lines like ‘style’ ‘comfort’ ‘confidence’ ‘physical attraction’ and my favorites ~ ‘like the runway’ and ‘embrace your spirit, cover your legs’ then added the ‘epic diva’ effect to her voice and turned it in.

it was up on the quiksilver site for like 2 days and i think they played it like once at the quiksilver new york event. so i don’t think it was received very well internally. but i still think it’s pretty hilarious.

on another note, i’ve been working closely with the new crew over there and it’s pretty exciting what’s going on. everybody was pretty devastated about losing kelly, but also see it as an opportunity to make some big changes and redirect the brand. rebirth. next episode. new dimension. and the way that they’re paying homage to the past but looking forward is refreshing and looking super dope.

some NEW SHIT from marine layer to keep the stoke alive! it’s mostly b sides from loaded, not many people know, but i tore my mcl 6 wks ago today, and the dr gave me 6-8 wks recovery time, so ‘FEED’ is a celebration of sorts, cause yeah, you’ll be seeing me on the slopes pretty damn soon. oh yeah, and also, there’s a small cameo from now deane. he came and stayed at my house for a few days in jan. rad. check the video in the player at the top of the page.

jason blanchard, principle filmer for marine layer productions, put together this retrospective compilation of his favorite waves he’s filmed. august 2011 to current. from trips for dear suburbia and assorted marine layer productions projects. CHEK it OUT

remember DEAR SUBURBIA?  shit man i do. this was the first trip for that movie, in august 2011. i went back a month later with john john and dillon perillo and yadin and the footage from that trip totally eclipsed this stuff cause the waves were even better, and this footage didn’t even make it into dear suburbia, it made it onto the web at what youth, in their infancy, and now it’s buried in their archives, but… what youth’s videos are now shareable and this ones definitely worth revisiting.

this was one of the best days of surfing in my life ~

a few notable memories ~

1. kolohe screaming: we’d been driving for like 3 hrs and didn’t think it really was going to be that good cause where surfed in the morning was shit but then we pulled up and it was pumping and we paddled out and kolohe screamed the whole 2 hours we surfed except when he was on waves.

2. yakuniku yakuniku yakuniku: when we finished surfing it was dark and we had a 3 hr drive ahead of  us and we weren’t looking forward to eating 7-11 for dinner again (happened a lot on this trip) and yadin couldn’t stop talking about yakuniku yakuniku yakuniku! its korean bbq where they bring out weird meats like tongue and stuff and you cook it on your table… i had never had it. anyways we found one, and everyone was super buzzed up off of stoke and i just remember laughing a lot and drinking beer and eating salty meat. that’s a good memory.

3. claiming it: it’s not my usual reaction to throw my hands up in the air when i’m stoked, and actually, this is the only time i can remember it happening (except maybe when i was really young) but before i knew it my hands were above my head. everyone had a good laugh about it when we watched the footage, cause kai missed the first part of the wave and it looked like i was claiming a little head dip. but then after some calls kai found a local guy that had filmed it so stoked it got documented cause it was one of the best waves of my life and the claim was pretty chris brown which, if i’m gonna claim it, i’m stoked it was like that.
