Dane Reynolds in Fine Form at Quiksilver Pro Round 2

Dane Reynolds rode a brand new 6’1” x 18 1/2” rookie squash tail.

Dane Reynolds (USA), 24, current ASP World No. 10, was another standout in this afternoon’s glassy conditions, posting an impressive 17.33 out of a possible 20, eliminating 2010 ASP Dream Tour rookie Blake Thornton (AUS), 29.

“I was happy they ran it today,” Reynolds said. “The other morning, I kind of got sacrificed for the tide because they have to start at a certain point to finish the round, and the first heat they’re going to start in bad surf. But today it’s really fun out there and they made a great call.”
