Men’s No. 2: Dane Reynolds
2011 SURFER Poll
After announcing his disenchantment with the World Tour and appearing sparingly in surf films of note, most top-of-the-heap surfers would consider the year Dane just had a bit of a disappointment. But most surfers aren’t Dane. His World Tour epiphanies kept him in our minds, and his blog, MarineLayerProductions.com, kept him in front of our eyeballs. Plus, his starring role in Lost Interest, in which he rips Oaxacan pointbreaks to shreds, was certainly one of the performances of 2011.
