Mick Fanning And The Stab In The Dark Raw Data
How fast does White Lightning strike?
Mick’s choice for this year’s Stab In The Dark winning board wasn’t based on top speed or length of ride, nor should it have been.
There’s no stats associated with how a board ‘feels’ underfoot, and that’s fine with us.
In saying that, this year Mick Fanning wore his Rip Curl #searchGPS Surf Watch 2 and on reflection, it's fascinating to discover just how fast the White Lightning strikes on each of these tricked-up surfboards.
The wrist clock also measures paddle distance, number of waves surfed, and even the time (gasp) – numbers that wouldn’t bear much influence on the subjective study’s outcome, but interesting facts nonetheless.
With the feature still on its premiere tour (more dates incoming), we’ll save the rest of our collected data for later.
