A peak behind the curtain of your most treasured surfing slices from the year just gone.
On our Instagram account we’ve been doing a countdown of the 25 most-watched clips of 2022. For the top 10, which will get us to the dying embers of the year, we thought we’d dig a little deeper into the videos themselves.
It’s a peak behind the curtain on just why these slivers of surfing from 2022 proved so popular with the Wavelength faithful. You’re a strange bunch, sure, but you know your surfing, and you know what you like. And that’s what we love about ya.
No. 8: We Heart Dane Reynolds
Now, what did you learn?” Was our caption for Dane’s Reynolds’ latest 60 seconds of slow-mo raw power. Now we’ll ignore the comment by purplehazentine (Not to eat too many donuts) and concentrate on the ongoing appeal of Dane Reynolds.
Three kids down, and arguably a decade past his peak, only a handful of surfers can still illicit such a greedy need from the surf fan. He remains the most powerful and unpredictable surfer of his generation. His tight lines are both off-kilter and symmetrical, as he bends physics into his own raw, beautiful style. We simply can’t get enough of Dane Reynolds. That’s always been our problem, and his.
