Mick Fanning Takes J-Bay Open

July 20, 2014 1 min read

Australian Mick Fanning defeated fellow Aussie Joel Parkinson in the finals of the J-Bay Open to take home the crown in strong 6 to 8-foot conditions at Supertubes.  Fanning scored a 9.0 on his first wave and an 8.0 on his third wave, meaning Parkinson would have had to pull off some near-perfect scores to get ahead.  With a win at Jeffreys Bay under his belt, Fanning has now won two events on the 2014 ASP World Tour.  "That's why we train, for big days like today," said Fanning in an interview after his win. "You kick out of a wave and see these big lines pouring in, and somehow find some more energy to do it all again."
