The new stage is set for Brazils, Saquarema and is expected to deliver some world class waves and high drama. Our Stephanie Gilmore who remains in No. 1 on the WSL’s Leep Leaderboard, retaining the yellow jersey is looking positioned to make a run for her seventh World Title.

The DNA model is consistently the team’s board of choice with each having setup sizes ready if the waves start pumping.

Starting off the first day of competing with a full day of ripping for the WSL’s Woman CT heats has left Steph Gilmore ready to battle out through round 4. With Gilmore still holding the Jeep Leader’s yellow jersey, her long drawn-out lines and deep rail work will make her a force to be reckoned with at the Bells Bowl.

While the waves have been pumping the rest of the team have made the most of the time to dial in their boards and prepare for their campaign.

Amongst Fanning‘s, quiver is the ‘Tour Tail’ which gains more drive and hold for bigger without needing to go to a ‘Pin Tail’. The tail is similar to the DNA model, but more defined with a slight ‘hip’ and a straighter square bottom edge finishing it off.

by DHD Surf

Leading up to the first event of the year Mick Fanning has been dialling in his new batch of DNA’s for the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast. The DNA is the perfect board going into the event knowing that it gives the same feeling and consistency that is expected, and he knows he can just trust. This model allows you push it harder but still without needing a step-up for when it gets bigger.

Mick Fanning #7 Returns To The World Tour

Mick Fanning #7 Returns To The World Tour

by DHD Surf

With 22 elite CT wins to his name and three WSL Titles, Fanning is one of the most accomplished surfers to ever grace the sport, but the lightning-fast natural-footer believes he has more to accomplish.

“The most important thing, to me, is making sure that my surfing keeps evolving – and the tour, now more than ever, is the best place to do that. In recent years I managed to find a good balance between competitive focus and having fun. Getting switched on for events this year will be the key for me. I don’t think it will be a problem. It’s not in my nature to be half-hearted, so now that I’m committed I’ll be doing everything I can to get a win.” – Mick Fanning

Mick Fanning is standing on a desolate beach in Norway, the sky ready to open up and dump snow. “I don’t think I’m well,” he says. “I can go anywhere in the world. Boardshorts, whatever. But no, I come here.”

It would be a dramatic way to cap off a year spent mostly away from contests, chasing new waves in far flung places.

After a couple of days and nights waiting for the lights to appear, around midnight on the third day the shoot was finally, suddenly on. “You can imagine,” says Fanning. “Half asleep, jumping in a wetsuit, and then just being wowed by all this stuff. It’s something I’ll remember forever.”
