Dane Reynolds will be greatly missed in the upcoming 2012 ASP World Tour.

Dane Reynolds will be greatly missed in the upcoming 2012 ASP World Tour. There are many very good surfers, but Reynolds has always been different. We were used to his unexpected moves and impossible tricks and barrels. Now, where will we see him riding waves?

Speculation has been following him for the past 12 months. Has he lost the passion for surf competition? Did Dane Reynolds lose the respect for the whole pro surfing scene? Is he tired of the surf industry or is he simply tired of surfing as a daily job?

The answer is not relevant. The thing is, Dane Reynolds gave color and creativity to pro surfing. He inspired younger generations and transmitted good sporting values.
