Joel Parking & Mick Fanning // 21 Days: Episode 1 // 13:42

posted by / Video / February 15, 2013

The first world tour event of 2013, the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast, is just about to fire up. And 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. Two best friends since childhood, two top 10 world tour surfers. A strange but endearing relationship, that’s easily the most engaging element of the coming 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…

    Hey Red Bull your video player sucks. I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t just use Vimeo.

    What the #$%& is going on? How dare you post this sort of crap! Get back to to flippity flips, boardshort colors and Chas’s character assassination and clothing manufacture rah rah this instant.

    Says a lot about the surf industry that a drink company is the only player smart enough to bring something interesting to the table.
