Episode 3 of Just passing through
When you live in place that has “Gold” in its name and “Super” in the name of its most notorious wave, you know that you’re somewhere special. And while the rest of the globe is traveling from far off places around the world to experience that, there’s no place quite like home for Mick Fanning.
Watching Mick toy with the long waves at the Superbank, it is so clear as to why he’s got the world titles, event wins and utter domination of various breaks around the world . From Snapper to Greenmount, all the way down the bank to Kirra, witness Mick’s casual approach – the subtle weight shifts to burn off speed to the little bunny hops to accelerate back through spinning little tunnels of joy – it’s as if Mick knows what the wave is doing before the wave even does.
