On June 8th 2012, Mick Fanning was one of the brave WCT surfers that decided to paddle out at Cloudbreak regardless of the ASP Volcom Fiji Pro being called off for the day.
Cloudbreak was HUGE! The wind wasn’t exactly perfect but as the afternoon wore on, the wind lightened, swung around to a more offshore direction and the waves started to clean up and turn on! Along with Ace Buchan, Fanning grabbed a borrowed board from Hawaiian Big Wave Surfer Kala Alexander and stroked out to the line up without a safety vest on, just board shorts!!
This preview segment of the internationally award winning documentary ‘Thundercloud’ is just a taste of what the complete production is like. It’s available for download on iTunes by clicking on this link :
