CLIP OF THE WEEK: Dane Reynolds and Yadin Nicol in California
To be fair, anything featuring Dane Reynolds will likely be clip of the week. He could just sit on a couch reading a book, film that, and bam, clip of the week. He’s that compelling. Anyway, he’s not even the star of this edit; Yades is, along with those delicious greater-SB-area waves.
