In flawless autumn conditions, Dragon’s Mick Fanning edged out fellow Australian Taj Burrow to win his third Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. With waves perfectly smoothed by a gentle offshore breeze, Mick blazed his way to the podium showing that he is ready for another World Title run in 2014.

Yesterday’s victory marks Fanning’s 17th elite tour win and his third at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach (previously winning in both 2012 and 2001). He now moves in 3rd position on the WCT Rankings and has huge momentum heading into Brazil.

Mick’s sunglass of choice is the Mansfield, Dragon’s bold new style that incorporates a distinct shield lens and classic silhouette. This spring, we have expanded the collection of Mansfield sunglasses to include new colours like Matte Black/Blue and Matte Lime. Find these and more at your local surf shop or click here to see the offering online.
