Fanning Reflects on His Magical Day at Pipe

Heat-by-heat recap of his title-clinching run at the Billabong Pipeline Masters.

In what is being labeled by many as the greatest day in competitive Surfing, Mick Fanning needed not one but two desperation waves with seconds on the clock to secure his third world title.

By now, you know the outcome.

After a few beers, and some time to reflect, Mick sat down to talk strategy and stress, focus and fear, technique and tactic, and everything else it takes to perform at maxing Pipe. And it all culminates with the most important wave of this life-- the wave that won Mick his third World Title.
