Portugal Through the Eyes of Mick Fanning

From dreamy rivermouth surfs to the commentator’s booth… this is the life of Mick Fanning at the 2018 Meo Rip Curl Pro Portugal

On Day One of the 2018 Meo Rip Curl Pro Portugal, we showed the world that 3x World Champion Mick Fanning was back. No, no, not competing – but cheering on the team as they battle it out on the banks at Supertubos.

Each day you’ll get a new insight into the event through the eyes of Mick Fanning. Today, we join him on a surf up the coast… chasing pockets outside of a remote rivermouth… and then back at the comp, he sits down in the commentary booth for Matt Wilkinson’s heat against Sebastian Zietz

Wilko hasn’t had the best run at events this year, but getting through Round Two here in Portugal might just mean he’s got his mojo back. But don’t let us tell you about it… press play on the clip above, and let the dulcet tones of M Fanno transport you to Portugal.

Oh, and did you happen to miss his first day back at a World Tour event… Day 1 at the Rip Curl Pro? Tune in, below.
