21Days: Parkinson And Fanning

Saturday, 16 February 2013

The first ASP World Championship Tour tour event of 2013, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, is about to fire up. While Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson have been sitting behind the rock at Snapper during their downtime, sharing barrels and riffing stories, come March 3 they'll be donning jerseys and doing battle. Best friends since childhood, both now world champions, they have a close but occasionally tense relationship, that's one of the most engaging element of the upcoming contest.

21Days is the first in a new series from Red Bull that takes a microscope to relationships like Mick and Joel's. In a similar vein to HBO's 24/7, the series will examine the most compelling pair of surfers heading into certain events throughout the year. Mick and Joel's story, chosen to kick off the series, is jamming both aesthetically (how could it not, the way these two surf), and dramatically (Humility! Friendship!). As if you weren't already burning with excitement for Snapper...
