My mate Paul Daniel spent some time with us in Europe last year filming for Rip Curl. He decided to dice up a little piece with some of the leftover footage. Cheers Pauly!

Interview: Empire Ave

November 20, 2012

EA – They say there’s only 1 Mick Fanning – have you met another Mick Fanning?
MF – No never met another Mick Fanning but I’m sure they are out there.

EA – Are you lightening fast?
MF – In what situation haha

EA – Your new boardies look pretty rad, one piece of material.  In your mind, from using the shorts, what are the pluses of one piece of material work vs the old technique of multiple panels?
MF – The one panel reduces seams and seems create rashes so the less seams the less rash. Also it’s just another spec that is only on that short.

EA – What level of input did you have in creating them? Are you educated in boardshort tech? Legnths, materials, cuts working to the body, etc??
MF – When designing its always a combined effort and a lot of tooing and froing. Had a bit to do with the look and length but the whole one piece creation was Rip Curl. I was really stoked they wanted me to use it cause its really comfortable.

EA – There’s no all black stealth pair? All year, you’ve been allblackeverything – when can we expect the all black pair to release?
MF – No all black pair in the pipeline as we speak. Couple of colour ways that you may not expect just to really confuse you ahhaha.

EA – The clip that got released with the boardies is just the start of an entire MF campaign/collection right? Must be pretty exciting to be working on a proper collection, what’s the aim with what you’re creating? How many pieces? Do you know when it’s being released?
MF – Yeah I was lucky enough to design a range with Rip Curl that is really all about making traveling easier. The whole idea is to keep the products light and easy to put together but not to look like your stock standard surf wear. Number of pieces are not confirmed as of yet, but there is a good number and it will be released in 2013.

Had a dream week at home before heading over to Santa Cruz. Nothing like a good swell on the Gold Coast points to get you psyched on surfing. My mate Shagga pieced together this clip from a few sessions…


This clip was shot at Trestles for Rip Curl's RUBBER SOULS webisode series. Hope you like.
