Surfer of the Week - 10/25/2021

DANE MATSON

Age: 16
Hometown: San Clemente, California
School: San Clemente High School: 11th grade. Favorite subject: English
Sponsors: Hurley, Sunbum, FCS and Lost Surfboards
Equipment: Lost Surfboards Driver 2.0 5'11"
Claim to Fame: The 2021/22 Southwest Conference Open got underway at Ventura Harbor on September 25-26 and Dane kicked off the new season with a dominant win in the Mens final. It was an impressive all-around performance for the 16-year-old from San Clemente securing the victory with two big scores of 8.67 and 7.60. Dane found his rhythm in the solid 3–4-foot lefts utilizing his powerful approach. The goofy-footer’s formula of hammering big frontside maneuvers out the back and finishing with big explosive hits on the inside was the perfect strategy for the steep, running lefts that were on offer. Dane was on a winning tear the entire event taking firsts in all his preliminary rounds proving that his competitive game is clicking. The talent has always been there. With the 2021 National Championships coming up in a few weeks, the San Clemente High School Junior wants nothing more than to keep that momentum going. He will be competing for both the Open Juniors and Open Mens titles. His goal is to take at least one of those. His brother Kade took the Open Juniors in 2018, and Dane could by all means follow in his footsteps. On an even higher level and an even bigger test, he will also contend for the Open Mens, a title that his favorite surfers Andy and Bruce Irons both won with their ferocious and radical ability. Performances that hold up to today’s standards. Dane’s surfing influences come for the Irons brothers because in his words “I like how they surf because I like big turns more than airs”. With his personal brand of power-based surfing and a mix of innovation, Dane could pulverize HB’s peaky walls and join his heroes on the elite champions list. Stay tuned! ### WHAT DID YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT THE WAVES AT VENTURA HARBOR? I liked that there were lefts! AGE YOU STARTED SURFING: My dad taught me when I was around 5 years old. SURF CREW: Tyrone, Hayden, Bryse, Luke, Ben and more. LOCAL SPOT: Lowers. WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT LIVING IN SAN CLEMENTE? Lowers and T Street. It’s always fun here. LOCAL HEROES: Griffin Colapinto, Kolohe Andino and my brother Kade. They live in San Clemente, and I see them surfing all the time. FAVORITE PRO SURFERS: Andy Irons, Bruce Irons and Chris Ward. I like the way they surf. I like turns more than airs. HOBBIES OTHER THAN SURFING: Basketball and I play guitar. IF YOU COULD SURF LIKE ANYONE IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD IT BE? Andy or Bruce Irons because they are very good. FANTASY SUPERPOWER: I would want super strength. SOMETHING PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU: I love music. DREAM WAVE: Any left in Indo. BARRELS OR AIRS: Barrels. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT SURFING NSSA CONTESTS? I love the people at NSSA. They are all amazing 😊 WHO HAS PUSHED YOUR SURFING THE MOST? Probably my friends. Surfing with them every day makes me want to surf better than them and do better in contests. GOALS THIS YEAR: To win the Nationals. THANK YOUS: To my family!
