Dane Reynolds: Life As A Wildcard

Dane Reynolds has the uncanny ability to paddle out in a heat and surf extremely well, and immediately following feel guilty. Why? Well, he’s hinted at the fact that upon receiving these recent wildcards into CT events, he feels he doesn’t belong there. Not because of ability, but because other people have worked their entire lives to get there. And by winning a heat (or multiple), he’s potentially delivering detrimental blows to their hard-earned year on tour. What a gentleman, right? Here, Mr. Reynolds speaks out, and so we listen. Let the humble Venturan elaborate on the conflicting mindset that is being a wildcard, and all those conflicting emotions that come with it.
