De Republica presents our latest project for Red Bull, a three minute insight into one of surfing’s greatest athletes. In this cinematic portrait piece, 2 x World Champion surfer Mick Fanning reflects on the arduous journey he faced en route to his two World Titles. The film takes an unique narrative approach to the Mick Fanning story. It looks at the new level of professionalism and athleticism that Mick has brought to competitive surfing. It also sheds light on the isolation Mick experienced during life at the top, which lead to his demise in 2010 and 2011. This year according to Mick, we are witnessing the ‘new’ him. A mix of the fun, easy going guy and the fearless determined athlete he has been characterised as in recent years. Fresh off with a win in Tahiti, Mick has regained the number one position.
Has Mick found a new formula to winning World Titles?
