Jane gave the ol' ASP the finger back in 2011, but now feels he's willing to give them another try, for the sake of the kids... Photo: Maassen

We love gossip almost as much as we (used to) love Dane.

And so it is with delight that we can reveal that Dane Reynolds is apparently all set to make a thrilling ASP Tour comeback. Bored with being bored, over being over weight and slightly embarrassed to have been comprehensively smoked in his fleeting Tour event appearances in 2013, the word from inside the cresting-wave-snow-capped-mountain camp is that Dane is set to attack the WQS with vim and vigour in 2014, with a view to getting back amongst the all-new all-awesome WCT.

Whether or not this means we're forced to pretend to be interested in his photography, vintage cameras, music taste, weird bird, etc.... who cares?!? Jus' get im in a singlet on a webcast!!!

Does my bum look big in this? Yes, yes it does. Photo: Maassen

Very many people in surfing have still got a boner, or at the very least a semi from this turn at Haleiwa back in 2012.
