Post Is Dane Really The Best?
on: August 2, 2011, 11:18

Lately, the majority of authoritative surf publications have deemed Dane Reynolds as not only a new major talent, but as the best surfer on the planet as of present day. Now, we are all familiar with his unfiltered rawness, aerial innovation, and overall outstanding surfing talent, but does he really fit the criteria of what is 'the best'? Arguments could be made that the definition of 'the best' is relative to the beholder, but for instance, can it plausibly be said that Dane is a better overall surfer than Mick Fanning, or even the King himself, Slater?

Basically, the question boils down to this:

Is Dane's labeling as 'the best' accurate? Or has his overall facade of contest disinterest, vanguard aerials, and raw on-rail game infatuated surf publishers to the point of over-praising him?
