"I was surprised to see Mick rock up with Phil McNamara and two fresh boards," recalls photographer Azad Sellars. Running into the world champ only days before the next ASP event, Trestles, is pretty strange. But Mick Fanning is the most prepared man in the business and loves his time at home. "I didn't get a chance to talk to him, but it looked like he was pretty relaxed. He had his dog down there and was switching between testing the two boards and throwing a stick for the dog," says Sellars. Judging from this sequence there are no cobwebs in Mick's small wave game. If you want to know how to move some water kids, pay close attention to this sequence. The Hurley Pro at Trestles kicks of between September 9 - 20.
