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
