The tour is just a bunch of surfers circle jerking each other off. Dane just wants some tasty waves & a cool buzz. I don't blame him for jumping ship.
Agreed man. I do enjoy watching the tour events but the stuff Dane puts out through Marine Layer is much better than watching him surf a heat. Plus he doesn't have that tour attitude, he's not going to paddle battle and hassle for waves. He has been pushing surfing progression so much more since he dropped off the tour.

Right on. Dane has mentioned how awkward it is showing up at the tour hotel/condo with a case of Budweiser, while all the other surfers are doing sit-ups, push-ups, jump rope, etc. His progression is a beacon of light in the surfing world. Dane manages to balance power surfing with this modern aerial BS on a CI Sperm Whale - his design of course. In all honesty, I credit Dane for raising awareness that you don't need to paddle a potato chip to dominate/have a great time - Mini-Simmons/Sperm Whale-esque shapes.
two guys who would make the tour a whole lot more interesting would be albee layer and clay marzo those two are ridiculous
I agree. clay marzo is so unpredictable with his asberger's syndrome. but he f'in rips! he's one of my favorite surfers ti watch just because you have no idea what he is gonna do next. albee just straight up charges
