Mick Fanning, frontside slob air-revs at Duranbah, Gold Coast
“This guy is no fucking dummy,” says photog Ryan Miller, who shot this sequence of Mick Fannning at Duranbah today. “Once he saw the criteria change for the WT events, he started to switch-up his surfing really quick, knowing he couldn’t rely only on just that one turn anymore.” Miller ain’t being harsh – just playful.

“This guy is no fucking dummy,” says photog Ryan Miller, who shot this sequence of Mick Fannning at Duranbah today. “Once he saw the criteria change for the WT events, he started to switch-up his surfing really quick, knowing he couldn’t rely only on just that one turn anymore.” Miller ain’t being harsh – just playful. Mick himself, eternally modest man that he is, politely declined a Stab/Kai Neville trip some time ago, citing a prior commitment before adding, “Sounds like a huge production and I’m sure Kai needs a good floater and cutback section for his movie, (laughs).” Talent and humour – the best combo imaginable.
“I saw him last year in the freesurfs practicing some slob straight airs,” continues Miller. “And now he’s throwing slob-roters into is arsenal as well. I bet this dude watches and then re-watches the shit out of some Kolohe videos.”
