Episode 021 with legendary surfer and 3x World Champ Mick Fanning is now live!
Whether it’s the wildcard win at Bells back in 2001 that served notice of his talent, those 3 World Championship titles, that infamous 2015 run-in with a Great White or his recent return to the tour after a much-needed year out, Mick’s lived an incredible life by any standards.
He is also, as I discovered, a supremely laidback and welcoming character, and during our conversation we covered the lot in an in-depth conversation with a man who’s lived a rollercoaster life, and is constantly striving to learn from the past, keep moving and keep evolving.
A real pleasure to talk to you Mick. Thanks for coming onto the show!

Had the pleasure of speaking to the great @500lbguerrilla (aka Jon Boyer) this week for a forthcoming episode of the @welooksideways podcast.
Jon, shot here by the legendary @danopendygrasse tearing up a challenging Tahoe pipe back in the day, was one of the original wave of snowboard pros who helped shape the sport we know and love. (If ya don’t know, now ya know).
Today, he makes his living as a screenwriter in Hollywood. In short, he is the perfect @welooksideways subject, and in the course of an engrossing 90-minute chat he didn’t disappoint. Thanks for coming on Boyer! Love your work.
This one will drop when I get round to finishing the edit, but in the meantime subscribe via your favourite podcast provider to hear this, the next episode with @mfanno and all the rest as they come out.
Had a blast hosting an evening with @finisterreuk Ambassadors and surfers @noahlane_ and @sandytynemouth at the @finisterreuk store in Covent Garden last week. Sold out, too – thanks to everybody that came along, listened to our live chinwag and stuck around to ask questions.
We were there to find out more about Sandy and Noah’s lives as surfers and raise a glass to the new #TrueNorth collection while we were at it. Fine lads, and good times. Thanks for the invite @lawrence_stafford and @finisterreuk fam. Thanks @olliestafford for the 📷
@mfanno in the house!
Yep, two weeks ago I was lucky enough to speak to this legend for the @welooksideways podcast.
Mick had just landed in France and we chatted about his year out, surfing at @kswaveco, his memories of the @kellyslater x Andy Irons years, and how he coped with the aftermath of a certain J-Bay incident.
Thanks for coming on Mick, appreciate it! Episode 021 with Mick is dropping this week – subscribe through the link in my bio to do it up when it comes out.
