Dane Reynolds is something of a poster boy for those who don't like poster boys in surfing. He's a walking 'whatever'. And many say he's the best surfer in the world.

Last week Dane, who hasn't competed in any ASP tour events yet this year due to a knee injury, announced that he wasn't going to be heading to JBay for the contest going on down there. No reason was given but it could have been to do with ... his knee injury.

Then again, maybe he's just lost interest. That's the name of his new mini-film, the likes of which he puts out irregularly on his blog marinelayer.com

Allegedly, this was filmed in the last month or so. Must have been part of Dane's physio rehab.

Anyway, that's the context, here's the bloody good surfing.
