    Haha.. That's even more ridiculous that the last statement. You actually think most could make it to his level if they were homeschooled? Come on dude. I do not think you are stupid, but you have got to be joking!!! There's about 20 dudes that are on his level and 10 of them are not too close. That's in the WORLD. You think you get there by not going to school? Silly

Real hard life surfing and not going to school and traveling. Shoot I am sure about 50 percent of these surfers on this site would have made it to the same level if not higher if give the same opportunity. As a professional athlete it is important to be a role model as well. I would not want the kiddies watching that.

    Like him or not Dane rips. He was probably stoned and drunk, having stated he was at the bar getting heckled...Then im sure he was nervous as hes standing up there talking to some of his peers while others are probably guys he looked to as a grom himself. We all get star-struck at some point or another. Not to mention a lot of it was prob inside jokes with the people he did know.

    I dont get the quicksilver joke...did they release a bunch of pros or something?

    I enjoyed this speech and it came off as genuine. I think he did a great job, his profession is surfer, not public speaker. I don't know.
    Me too! He did seem genuine. Its hard to get up in front of people. I just did a best man speech and it was scary.

    I don't think Dane is as good a surfer as Kelly, John John, and some others at the top level of the game. I think he has some amazing free surf stuff but even as of late john john has had some of the sickest free surf stuff I've seen. I'm also dying to se mfmissing as I heard it was amazing. I think being able to constantly be at the top of the tour with all the various waves really shows to a surfers consistantcy, because let's face it they are all super talented that's never a question. People make runs all the time. But it's people like Kelly and Mick that are always in it always impressive. Although I'm not sold on Mick I don't like his style as much. But anyways always being in it leads me to believe they are better/more talented/just have something everyone else doesn't. Kelly really seems sold on john john as the future of surfing he says he's the best a lot more than I hear him talk about dane

    I know one things for sure, his speech was light years better than George Clooney's smug storm speech or anything else we see these false demigods of hollywood say.

    I thought it was excellent...he came off awkward, but that happens to those who may dislike public speaking. Funny and found it refreshing...that guy rips!
