Pancho, the man mountain, has been digging deep for others not just on the North Shore, not just in pro surfing. He is one of the most inspirational and selfless people you will meet. Now it’s our chance to give back.

Hi All,

Just want to inform you guys that there is going to be a fundraiser for Kehau Sullivan, the youngest and newest addition to the Pancho Sullivan Family. Kehau was born with heart troubles and has already had an operation to help her keep going. She will need around four operations in her lifetime and as we all know insurance will only cover so much.

We all know Pancho from when he was on tour and being a North Shore standout forever. Pancho did so much to help out whilst he was on tour and has always been willing to lend a helping hand to anyone that has ever needed it. So let’s show our love and support by helping him and his beautiful family.

Myles Padaca and his wife have organised a fundraiser night on the 5th December at Breakers, Haleiwa, 6pm to help Pancho and Haunani with the huge medical costs.

There is a website where you can donate money and there is also going to be an on-line board auction so if you have a spare board feel free to contact Myles and help out with the cause.

Myles’ contact details are and the link to donate money is:

Lets all pitch in and help such a wonderful loving family so they can concentrate on getting little Kehau strong and healthy for a long and amazing life.

Thanks for your time,

– Mick Fanning

Hi Again….
Us Aussies don’t have Thanksgiving but I wish we did. It’s like Christmas, all the food you can eat, a few beers and a great vibe. Hope you enjoy a ride around the Thanksgiving vibe at the Oakley house.
Cheers and beers.
Tom Whits.

I know it’s been a while since my last post, a bit has happened. Did a two week stint in Portugal for the final leg of our Euro invasion: Supertubes came to life and there were some serious waves on hand. I’m back home now, feels really good to be back with the family in my own bed after two and a half months on the road. But that’s part of the job! I’ve got about three weeks until I head off for Pipe.

So it’s all about getting the right training in now before I jet off, get the lungs ready for some possible beat downs, get the confidence up to push myself just that much more, it’s an El Nino year so there could be some serious swells for this season. They’ve actually already had some serious waves hit the North Shore this winter and November has only just started!

If anything interesting happens while I’m home, will post it on the blog ( Hopefully I can get some waves while I’m home cause I’ve actually had no waves at all this year. Missed all the swells that have hit Durban and when I’ve been on the road for events, we’ve pretty much had bad waves all year round too. So if you know of any good waves around, let me know!

Peace out,

“Yeah Yeah Yeahs … “


One of my most fav bands in the world, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were playing while the Trestles contest in LA was on and one of my good buddies hooked me up with some tickets.

I had no idea where we were going to be seated and did not care one lil bit. Was just so excited to have the op to get there in the first place. The night just got that much better when we asked the guy who worked at the Greek Theatre where our seats were and he pointed at this booth below. I looked at TB and he had the same expression on his face when he won J bay and that was a few years ago. Have not seen it since then either. Hahahahah, kidding hui.


The Team:
– Me and my girl,
– TB and Steph,
– Johny and Sasha,
That’s Steph trying to fly kick Johny in the face. I think she is looking for a Bra Boys tatt or a postcode or some sort of cred from him. Maybe she is just over him being the 3rd wheel …



The Greek Theatre was the best venue I have ever been to. Did not matter where you sat, you had good vision of the band and could enjoy the atmosphere that this place had to offer. It’s fully outdoor which is great. The only thing I could ask for more is volume. I like it when I feel the music rattle my bones. So that’s why straight after the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, me and my lady drove across LA to the Viper Room and watched The Goons play really, really, really loud … Nothing better than seeing your boys play rock and roll, well, loud, loud noise.


Ozzzzzzzzzz, Blakey, Tim and Cow are The Goons.

We also went to Disneyland the next day at 8:30am. Real smart move. The girls were hurting and so was I and that’s why I’m not in any of these shots.
