Mick Fanning 3rd at 2013 Billabong Pro Tahiti

19 August 2013 – Mick Fanning today placed 3rd at the 2013 Billabong Pro Tahiti and moves to No.2 in World Title race.

Mick, the 2012 Billabong Pro Tahiti champion, was in fine form throughout the event, but ultimately fell to eventual winner Ace Buchan in today’s Semifina…ls. Despite an impressive 9.13 of his own, Fanning was unable to overcome an early onslaught from his compatriot and settled for Equal 3rd.

“Big picture is all going well,” Fanning said. “Another Semifinal? You can’t be disappointed with that. Ace (Buchan) had a great heat with a phenomenal start and I had a couple of opportunities to come back but the tube monster got me. That said, I had a couple of close heats so to finish Equal 3rd is a good result.”

“The forecast was looking pretty dim before the event started but I think it’s been one of the better years for waves we’ve had,” Fanning said. “We finished early and I’m looking forward to a little more time at home before the next big leg.”

Good luck Mick at the next WCT event at Trestles in September, from all the crew at the Kirra Surfrdiers club. Yeeeooww!!
