The Champ

There are few humans in the world that are capable of surfing Snapper Rocks and Kirra as well as the 2009 World Champ Mick Fanning. As mentioned, he's won the event multiple times, and Lord knows the last time he didn't make the quarters or semis. But why shouldn't he dominate? It's where he first stepped on a surfboard, and to this day when he's home and there's a hint of swell chances are you'll find him lurking about. As for his offseason? A few parties, a little vacation, some training, and his wife threw a birthday party for their dog. Life is good for Fanning, especially when he's home. (Joli)
