There’s a reason why ESPN is so huge. It’s things like their E:60 series. The one you see above is about much more than just Mick’s shark attack–which, understandably, is the cornerstone of the documentary–it’s about Mick Fanning.
While the shark attack broadcast live to the world catapulted Fanning into a realm only a few other surfers occupy (one where people who don’t surf know his name), it was just a small part of what makes Mick. This is his story.
