:: Mick x 3
Hope you got a chance to watch some of the action live from Pipeline yesterday. 3 champions crowned at a single epic day of surf at the infamous Banzai Pipeline - historic! John John Florence took out the Triple Crown, King Kelly Slater became a Pipe Master for the 7th time and Mick Fanning amassed enough points to win the title of 2013 ASP World Surfing Champion. If you missed it, do yourself a favour and check out the highlights. Mick's road through to the Quarter Finals was nail biting. It was stressful enough watching at home, I can't imagine what his family and friends would have been going through on the beach. In the end, Mick kept his head in solid, heavy Pipeline and pulled out the scores when he needed them most. Cool headed surfing in the biggest pressure pot of in the world of surfing. Congratulations Mick - so stoked for you!!
With 1ft of surf in Manly, I decided to revisit some images from last moth when Mick, Joel, Kelly and crew happened to converge at Cloudbreak. :: Murray
