Mick Fanning has conquered the J-Bay Open 2016, at Jeffreys Bay, in South Africa.
The Australian surfer defeated John John Florence by a narrow margin – only 0.57 points – in an exciting final held in two-to-four-foot waves. Fanning overcame the shark attack experience and raised the trophy in the South African right-hand point break.
Fanning surfed his fourth consecutive final at Jeffreys Bay. Despite suffering an ankle injury before the event, Mick led his small board with a thruster setup to victory.
