Interview by Taylor Paul, Surfing Magazine

“It started because I wanted to document — oh shit hold on…” The phone goes silent and I just hear road noises. Dane Reynolds is driving to go surfing and along the way he’s going to tell me about his new film, Loaded, which premieres February 1 at the Ventura Theater. But still, just road noises. A few moments later he’s back. “Hello?” Yes, I’m here. “Sorry, there was a police officer. Anyway…”

Dane Reynolds: …Loaded started because I wanted to document the Slow Dance premiere tour and I was doing those trips with Taylor [Knox, for SURFING Magazine’s November Issue]; I was going to use those trips as the base to build a video of just totally random shit, but it’s kinda turned into something else with other surf trips and people woven in.

Where’d you go? Who’s in it?
We went to Macaronis, France, Salina Cruz a couple of times, Hawaii and a little bit of California stuff. And it’s me, Taylor, Craig [Anderson], Nat Young, Andrew Doheny and Noa Deane. In the beginning I wanted to do individual sections of people but I wasn’t able to film with other people as much so it just turned being more session based.
