people would prefer to be in the casket as opposed to delivering the eulogy

I wish I had 1/10 of that young fella's talent. If I did, I would walk around not giving a sh!t about how I looked or what others thought of me too. Wait, I already walk around not giving a sh!t about how I look or what other think. Now I've gone and confused myself again....

Looked to me like he had a really good buzz on. There's other footage of him, like in "First Chapter" , where he comes off like ordinary Joe. Just don't think he really gives 2 turds about awards or popularity contest but his sponsors want him there. Seems like he prefers that eccentric artist approach to whatever he does lately.

Kelly always says that Dane is the best. He's said it in a ton of interviews... He does say that JJF is the future of the tour... JJF says that Dane has the most talent as well. If you were to ask all the guys at the top of the game most would say Dane has the most talent.
Personally I don't think one is better than the other. They are both insane.

again, I agree with nynj
I really dont even think Parko or Mick hold a candle to Dane's raw talent, they are just better CONTEST surfers.
If you dont know the difference between raw talent and contest surfing, I suggest you look into it
some people are really good at their thing and when you make them perform on command (like a dog) it drains the passion

High as an astronaut boys. Psyched to see Dane is a fellow herb toker. The way he was talking and that god awkward laugh gives it away.
On another note the video from a few years ago was great. "Thanks to quicksilver for sending me stickers"
Quicksilver will never let him go.
Surfing needs JJ, Dane, Slater, as well as all of the other guys on tour. They are there for a reason. Each bring their own style to the table. But the 3 we have been mentioning stand out and above from the rest. They each are number 1 in their age groups and that is fact.

I'm fascinated that anyone can bash Dane on his speaking skills when on-stage (especially someone whose anonymous internet persona suggests he's a soul surfer). The dude is truly an artist and sees things differently than a lot of people. Hence his approach to a wave and life in general. Privileged? A little, but that comes from having talent at a young age too.
Nobody drew the Tom Curren parallel? Watch some of his old interviews and see how similar they speak. I don't think his speech suggested that he was stoned either. But I'm not ruling that one out...
Most interesting part of this thread is the Eddie Rothman/ Sam George incident. Eddie is still running around the North Shore trying to kick people's asses like the Neanderthal that he is. For decades now. However, I would never say that anywhere but from the anonymous safety of the internet!
