Industry News


Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 February, 2008 : - - In celebration of Micks monumental WCT world title win DHD surfboards is proud to release the Mick Fanning World Title Replica Edition.  This board is an exact copy of the boards that Mick Fanning rode to victory in his 2007 winning year.

All Mick Fanning model surfboards are made to replicate the shapes and designs used by Mick and progress along with his actual boards.  Unlike the standard Mick Fanning model the replica edition features the world title logo as below and is also manufactured using the exact same processes as boards made for Mick to use on the WCT. 

These boards feature a unique to BASE Surfboards 45 degree diagonal fibreglass laminating method. (Regular glassing is parallel and at 90 degrees to the stringer) They are glassed in one layer of 4 ounce fibreglass top and bottom with a back foot patch as per Micks specifications.

This Glassing method while extremely light utilises a meticulous industry standard finish developed by and unique to BASE Surfboards.  This method along with the BASE diagonal lay up ensures that the board has the ultimate combination of extremely lightweight world title winning performance and added durability.  These boards are not indestructible or more resistant to denting moreover they offer added lateral strength in comparison to other lightweight boards. 

Testament to the added lateral strength given by the diagonal glassing is Micks infamous “Snapper Board” which Mick rode to victory at Snapper Rocks at the start of the 2007 WCT Season and lasted all of the way to the Semi Finals in France winning him a total of $68,000 before it met a glorious death.  A true magic board that lasted long enough to make a difference to his campaign.

These boards are for the customer that is seeking the highest proven performance surfboard available in the world and is unwilling to compromise. For more info on DHD Surfboards or to locate a dealer in your area see
