2012 Mick Fanning Series

2012 Mick Fanning Series

by DHD Surf

Darren Handley and Mick Fanning are stoked to introduce to you the new ‘MF’ Series to kick off the year 2012. Although the refinement and constant pursuit for improvements never stops with these two, Mick and DH have made some big changes this year. Tightening up the range and recognising three distinct Mick Fanning models that will be used on tour this year. The Ducks Nuts Micks go to performance board. The Eager Beaver as Mick’s step down model when the surf gets a little smaller and lacks power. The Sweet Spot a tight little model for throwing around in the pocket on good days, as Mick says this one just wants to stay in the sweet spot of the wave. Have a read below to hear what Mick has to say about his models and click on the links to see the full size range of each model.

Ducks Nuts is Aussie slang that means “the best thing.” I’ve worked on this board for a long time. If the waves are pumping with really clean conditions that’s the board I go to. It has single to double concave thru the fins and heaps of drive. I ride 5’11 1/2×18 5/8×2 1/4.”MF

Eager Beaver is the model that adds life and fun to smaller, sloppier conditions. Its based off boards I’ve been riding in California and Brazil and features deep single concave into slight vee off the tail giving you more zing and the ability to change up your lines. I ride 5’11×18 3/4×2 ¼.”MF

Sweet Spot is the model that I made with the idea of staying right in the pocket of the wave. I can jam it as hard as I want and know it will hold, and not worry about nosediving or getting stuck in the curve because there is less board. I ride it at Snapper, Kirra, and places like P-Pass, and the thing goes amazing. I ride 5’10×18 3/4×2 ¼.”MF
