The 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Tour is ready for launch this weekend at The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, and to celebrate GrindTV is launching our newest surf series, Inside Pro Surfing, where we will take on the most interesting headlines in the sport. We’re launching with some questions surrounding a possible return to full-time competitive surfing by Dane Reynolds, one of the greatest surfers in the world.

Reynolds joined the tour for only a few seasons before quietly “retiring” to concentrate on filming for self-produced surf films and segments on his website, After a year or so off the full-time World Tour schedule, and with only a handful of appearances as a wildcard surfer in scattered events, Dane stirred up speculation by entering two World Qualifying Series events in Australia in early February. No formal announcement of a return to the ranks of the WQS has been made, but surf pundits are buzzing at the thought of seeing Dane Reynolds return to the World Tour.

In this week’s episode of Inside Pro Surfing, Chris Mauro and Chris Cote discuss the likelihood of Dane’s improbable return. Should he come back? Could he? Would he? Watch to find out.
