Whilst we watched these massive waves barreling on our tiny hand held screens around the world, the warrior wrestled his broken heart over the ledge and locked into another lifetime wave. Because bravery was backed by preparation and a spiritual yearning for the big picture within his soul. Dane unwraps his mindset and describes the chronological emotions that day in the Fijian water.

CLOUDBREAK ? // May 27, 2018 It’s been an unreal few days in Fiji. So much power in that swell, just getting off the boat you felt like a tiny spec that could be swallowed up by the ocean. This was my first paddle wave of the morning, I was so nervous and excited sitting on the boat watching it, I thought it might calm the nerves to just get out and get one, and hopefully fire up the crew for an epic day of riding. This wave was just a pure lock in, growing and growing all around me until it vaporized me on the inside section. I was so thankful to see Ryan Hargrave pictured in the orange jacket on the ski come ripping through the white water to come grab me after just getting pounded for what felt like ages. View of a life time tho, and a thrill to match. @tannergud and I were cracking up in the boat after saying it felt like I had just been struck by lightening ! Huge thank you to @kaiborg @ryanhargrave and Abe Lerner for looking after everyone with the skis over the past few days, @tavaruaislandresort family, to uri and the local crew, and nomutu and everyone who shared in the magic, that was INSANE! ?@joliphotos
