Kauai’s own model/pretty boy surfer, Danny Fuller has left the Quiksilver team to join the likes of Rothman, Archy, Jones and others on the RVCA team.
Danny is officially a member of the RVCA Tribe. A long time friend and the perfect ambassador for the brand, Danny fits into the mix perfect. He’s back in Hawaii now, getting ready for the Backdoor Shootout.
This is a great move by both parties. Fuller was never going to get the exposure he deserves riding for Quiksilver. I would imagine being in the shadows of Quik’s allstar lineup of Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Julian Wilson, Ry Craike, Fred Patacchia, Clay Marzo, and Jeremy Flores is a very cold place to be. Danny will have a much better opportunity to break-through and show the world just how hard he charges being on a team that isn’t stacked to the roof with the world’s best surfers. Plus, RVCA’s all about the artsy stuff anyways, which seems to fit Danny’s lifestyle of modeling, photography, and philanthropy a lot better.
