MINI MICK

Received this classic letter via my personal site, mickfanning.com, from Karynne and her son Jed.
Thanks guys!

“Our ten-year-old son is often told how much he looks like a little Mick Fanning. Jed loves surfing. We live five minutes away from the ocean and get in there as much as possible. Jed will go in and stay in for 3 to 4 hours at a time, the only way I can get him out is to stand on the shore waving a white paper bag with pie in it! Attached are some images for you to see the resemblance. Hope you enjoyed this email.”

GOOD TO BE BACK

Hey it’s good to be back in France. I left in January when it was winter and snowing and now I am back and it’s getting much warmer, the waves haven’t been so good yet but I can’t wait to surf the typical powerful beachbreaks and barrels and fun peaks we usualy surf!!! I’ve been doing a few training sessions with Yannick, and just been taking care of other things ’cause I was away for a while …

CHECK IN

Filed under: Aritz Aranburu — Tags: , — wpssuperblog @ 9:38 pm

This morning I arrived at the airport in Las Vegas to catch my 9:35 flight.

I tried to make a “fast check-in” at one of those machines, the type where before you even start using it, you know it won’t work. In the end I had to line-up in the queue for a lady to help me with the subject.

“I’m so sorry, Mr Aranburu, but your flight isn’t at 9:35am, it will be at 9:35 pm,” she said, looking at me like I was an idiot.

And the truth is that maybe I was a bit of an idiot. “If one day has 24 hours, why you guys have to call it 9, instead of the 21st hour of the day?” I asked poker-faced (that’s what you tend to do around here)

Maybe I could spend another day in Vegas? When I managed to find a ticket from another company, which gave me time to make my connections, I had to make a decision

Take it now – I wanted to leave Vegas on a high.

As four hours before, Hodei, Alba, Adur and I bet $125 that was going to be red: “Tatatatatatatatatatatatatatat ta ta ta ta taa taaa taaa … Red 18!”
