SURFING WAVES TOO GOOD TO TALK ABOUT:
"For me, it's all about going to new places now," says Fanning. "Specifically? Umm...yeah...nah, probably don't wanna throw that out there [laughs.] But there are a whole bunch of areas I've never been to that I really wanna visit and just put myself in different kinds of waves. I don't want to be that guy who chases the best swells to the same place everyone else is going. I'm going to places a bit further out there, places where you know you might only find a couple of guys, or no one at all. I set some time aside so I could be ready to jump on it when it looks like it's all coming together, and I'm in one of those periods right now where I'm just searching maps all day, every day, trying to find something new and fun. I wake up each day wondering, "Am I gonna be here this afternoon, or am I out the door?"
