ROUND ONE – PUERTO RICO

Puerto Rico is showing some serious potential as another quality Search location. Day one was junky and super shifty but there were still some super fun waves out there and I watched some good heats.

My boards didn’t turn up and are on their way to Puerto Rico after taking a little holiday in Japan. Cheers AA! I borrowed a couple of boards including one I’d sold to a mate a year ago. I also had a board from Steph Gilmore. I rode my old board in my heat, it went okay but definitely a little different. I managed to win through and I’m into Round 3 now.

There’s been a serious lack of swell at Chopes this past week but Taylor, Tiago and I found some waves on the eastside of the island.

Ever wondered what your favourite surfers will look like in 20 years? Me either … but my mate had this ‘AgingBooth’ app on his iPhone and hit up a couple of the Top 45 and a commentator during the Billabong Pro at J-Bay. See if you can pick em …

OLD BROKEN WING VIDEO

Was cleaning out a dusty old hard-drive the other day and uncovered some ancient footage of surfing with a broken wrist. I busted it snowboarding in Japan before the 2008 season kicked off. Nothing too great in there I just thought you might like to check it out.

MINI MICK

Filed under: Mick Fanning, Uncategorized — wpssuperblog @ 4:20 pm

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

“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.”

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t stinging a little after missing out on a second Bells Title. I have to give props to Kelly though. He pulled some freakish gear in the final and did it all with a busted foot.

I wanna also send a shout-out to all the fans who travelled all over Vic to watch the event unfold. It was a marathon event and a big effort from the spectators that made the journey. The support was amazing and it definitely helped me on the way to the final.

The second placing got me a mini Bell trophy and puts me into fifth position on the World Title ratings, which I feel better about after having a bit of a shocker in the first event. I’m in Panama with the Reef team now, from there I’ll head to Brazil for stop three of the tour. Can’t wait.

Got more sun then your average kid today in Panama shooting for the new reef campaign

What an amazing day at Melbourne GP. Met some great people, got to see what goes into a car, and got to jump in one. Lucky kid.

Let’s go Webber and Team Red Bull.
