Watch: Mick Fanning and DHD on Mick’s J-Bay Shark Board

The board also known as “yum yum yellow”.

It was the ‘shark incident’ seen around the world. Mick Fanning and Julian Wilson had just paddled out for the final of the 2015 J-Bay Open and were waiting for their opening rides to roll through, when live on screen Mick was set upon by a large White Shark. We all know the story, we’ve all seen the footage.

However, here Mick and his shaper Darren Handley give us a different perspective as they dissect  not only the incident itself, but also the board Mick was riding at the time. A board that took him to victory at Bells earlier in the year. A board that is now known as ‘yum yum yellow’.
