ESPN’s E60 with Mick Fanning Post JBay

by DHD Surf

ESPN’s tears into the personality behind the athletes: the troubles, trauma, psyche and triumphs. They’ve covered everyone from Bo Jackson, Vin Scully, Michael Jordan to Marshawn Lynch and anyone with a story worth telling. So, they’ve just released this, with Mick Fanning post the shark attack in J-Bay and narrated by actor and pretty decent surfer, Chris Hemsworth. Here’s the documentary in its entirety. It dives much deeper than the shark attack heard round the world and is a more insightful documentary than surf media could ever produce. Mick’s like the surfing version of Tony Robbins, inspirational and has the ability penetrate emotions. “The world deals people these cards,” says Mick. “You have the choice to be crippled by them or you have the choice to go okay, I’m gonna go and make a better version of myself. That’s how I look at it.”

The waves were pumping for the final, and it couldn’t have been a better match up. Mick faced off against fellow Cooly kid Joel Parkinson, defeating him in the end 17.00 to 13.60.

Mick rode his DHD MF Ducks Nuts, bolstered by carbon reinforcement and lightened by a 4×4 Team glass job.

“Darren and I looked back to my boards from 2006 & 2002 (JBay victories), picked out what was working and improved the rest.” – Mick Fanning

“Mick’s current Ducks Nuts is the sum of years and years of research and development. Everything that makes the board the what it is today is based on what Mick and I have worked on together.” – Darren Handley
