INTRODUCE US TO DANE ZAUN? Dane is a die-hard Lakers fan who has been known to do an air or two. He just graduated from a flawless amateur career and is taking it to the next level with his incredible surfing.
WHATâ€™S HIS BIGGEST CLAIM TO FAME? A perfect heat in Open Men’s at NSSA Nationals, Surfing America U18 Champion and I think he’s proud of his car and colorful quiver.
HOW DID YOU GUYS HOOK UP? We grew up together. I went off to film school this year and his career is taking off so Innersection seemed like the perfect way for us to collaborate.
DO YOU THINK HEâ€™S GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO BE PART OF THE NEXT TAYLOR STEELE MOVIE? Absolutely.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM PREVIOUS ROUNDS OF INNERSECTION? It’s exciting seeing what people come up with. I learned that good surfing does not necessarily mean you will make it â€” the judges are looking for more.
ANY FAVORITE SECTION FROM PREVIOUS ROUNDS? Craig Anderson.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT DANE WE PROBABLY SHOULDNâ€™T KNOW? He ran around the town naked after the Lakers won.
WHATâ€™S THE BEST SURF MOVIE OF ALL TIME? 156 tricks.
ONE WAVE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? My home break in the South Bay, I love it.
