Mick Fanning challenges fear at Shipstern Bluff

Mick Fanning has ridden some of the thickest and most dangerous waves of his life, at Shipstern Bluff, in Tasmania. The Australian surfing champion returned from Teahupoo and immediately traveled to Devil’s Point with big wave surfer Mark Mathews. The iconic reef break was pumping solid barrels. “Had the funnest day ever yesterday with the boys at Shippies! Thanks for the call and thanks to all the Tassie crew for being ultimate legends, especially Zeb Critchlow for whipping me into this thing!” wrote Mick Fanning.
