21Days: Parko/Fanning, Episode One

By Team on in Surfing

Ep. one of 21Days tells the story of Mick and Joel heading into 2013's first event at Snapper Rocks.

The first world tour event of 2013, the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast, is just about to fire up. And while Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson have been sitting behind the rock at Snapper during their downtime, sharing barrels and riffing stories, come March 3 they'll be donning jerseys and doing battle. Two best friends since childhood, two top 10 world tour surfers. A strange but endearing relationship, that's easily the most engaging element of the coming contest.

"21Days" is the first in a new series from Red Bull, that takes a microscope to relationships like Mick and Joel's. In a similar vein to HBO's 24/7, the series will examine the most compelling pair of surfers heading into certain events throughout the year. Mick and Joel's story, chosen to kick off the series, is jamming both aesthetically (how could it not, the way these two surf), and dramatically (humility! Friendship!). As if you weren't already burning with excitement for Snapper...
