Mick Fanning’s Tryptych
Former three-time world champion Australian Mick Fanning stars in Triptych. In case you didn’t know, Triptych is a noun that means something composed or presented in three parts or sections.
The film was released in three parts, but is also available as one video now. In Part I of III, the video shows how that skinny kid with white eyebrows became one of surfing’s greatest heroes. The film contrasts Mick’s surfing when he was a grom almost two decades ago to today. It’s an amazing side-by-side comparison and he surfs almost the same then and now.

Mick has surfed at the highest elite level for more than three decades. In Part II, see Mick rip some of the most iconic waves of his career. In Part III, some surfer’s only get better with age like a fine wine and Mick is one of them. The next chapter of Mick’s life includes him as a father, entrepreneur and person who is passionate about giving back to the sport that has given him everything.
