2013-12-16 00:00

MICK Fanning (AUS, 32) claimed his third ASP World Title in epic conditions at the Billabong Pipe Masters in memory of Andy Irons on Saturday.

Drawing compatriot Nicol in the quarter-finals, Fanning once again found himself at a disadvantage early in the heat with his West Australian opponent racking up a number of high scores on his backhand at Pipeline. Needing an excellent score in the dying moments of the heat, Fanning dropped into a second reef set, setting up for a tremendously deep backhand barrel before being spat out into the channel. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
