Well, first event is down and it was a real test this year; not just simply surfing Snapper – we started at D’bah, then Snapper, then ended up at big groyne Kirra.

I love the first event ’cause everyone is so hungry. Everything was running really smoothly until Parko beat me in the semi. It was a really cool heat though he had me comboed; then I came back, comboed him; then he came back again with a ten and a high nine.

It had been a long time since Joel has had a win so I was stoked for him. On other things, my new website mickfanning.com should be up any day now. It looks really cool so I hope people like it.

Now I’m on my way to Ayers Rock for my first anniversary with Karissa. Pretty excited. It was classic too ’cause we saw Anthony Mundine in Alice Springs. He was on a youth program trip.

After this, I am off to Indo for ASL’s 250th issue trip with Occy, Bede, Steph, and Ozzie. Should be classic. Anyway got to go ’cause plane is boarding for the big rock.

Cheers,

Mick
