21Days: Episode Two

Saturday, 23 February 2013

Mick trains hard, Joel itches for action and Snapper Rocks is set to erupt. Welcome back to 21Days. The Quiksilver Pro, Snapper Rocks, gets closer and closer, and Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson can feel it looming. The surfing world's collective shoulders tighten and even Snapper itself can feel the heat coming.

Mick and Joel, well and truly outta holiday mode now and deep into prep are as ready for the first event of the year as they'll ever be. While Joel would never begrudge his media commitments (everyone wants a piece of you when you're a world champ), he's itching to get started on the year and get back into his competitve rhythm. Mick is focused as ever on training, building cardio and confidence in equal measures, using his love of challenges as motivation to push it.

With Joel the immovable object, and Mick the unstoppable force, episode two of 21Days documents another step towards impact.
