An App Angry Locals Will Love
Surfspotting, a new app in the Apple Newsstand, “allows the user to have access to view 1,250 surfing locations with their exact GPS locations.

'Secret' spots, jk!

More Dane
Dane is now in the Surfing Hall of Fame…? And his dog’s paws will forever be imprinted on the streets of Huntington. Watch the 10-min video his gf made here. It’s weird.
