DHD Mick Fanning World Title Surfboard
We might not be able to surf like Mick Fanning but we could get the same board Mick won his world title with. DHD surfboards is releasing the Mick Fanning World Title Replica Edition Surfboard. This surfboard is an exact copy of the one that Mick Fanning rode in 2007.
All Mick Fanning model surfboards are made to replicate the shapes and designs used by Mick with one thing that Mick Fanning did not have – a world title logo. Not only are they the same shape, they are also shaped and glassed using the same methods – like a unique 45 degree diagonal fiberglass lamination (one layer of 4ounce fiberglass top and bottom and an extra patch of fiberglass for the back foot).
Glassing method is also aimed towards lightweight surfboard but still gives some added durability.
WCT board are another league of boards – their only aim is to be as lightweight and as high performance as possible. Durability is not a question, if Micks break one he gets a new one. This is why there is only one layer of fiberglass on the top. Still, Micks “Snapper Board” lasted all the way from his Snapper Rocks victory at the start of the 2007 WCT all the way to the Hossegor Semi Finals.
