The Search, Red Monkey, Full Moon is back!

16 octobre 2019

  • In fact… welcome to paradise, boys.
  • Where party waves aren’t necessarily shared, just timed…
  • From any distance, his style is unforgettable. Mason Ho, doing what he does best.
  • When waves like this go un-ridden, it can only mean one thing… you’re out there, on #TheSearch.
  • No matter how many times you go to a spot, the ocean will always serve up something different. This particular trip for Mick and Mason? Well, it was pretty gourmet…
  • A delicious plate of mind-surfing goodness.
  • After a few days in the jungle, Mick and Mase jump in the car and head cross-country.
  • Mason Ho, reporting for duty.
  • And serving for his country well, we might add.
  • Mason, never one to shy away from a tan.
  • Blown out from the rays.
  • The 3x World Champion assessing the situation.
  • As always, clinical.
  • Michael Eugene Fanning, ladies and gents.
  • And the vision that drives all of us on The Search…
  • Step 1, duck and tuck
  • Step 2, hold the line
  • Step 3, don’t run over the photographer
  • Mason Ho is always flying high, but when he’s on The Search he reaches whole new levels
  • That face. That style.
  • That air guitar…
  • The 3x World Champ, perplexed at Mason’s styrofoam strumming
  • Mick and Mase might not always get along, but they know how to work things out.
  • Who do you reckon takes the win?
  • The Champ showing Mason how it’s done in the big leagues… and Mase, lapping up every second.
  • Exhibit A.
  • Exhibit B.
  • Wave for wave.
  • Barrel for barrel.
  • And a session to remember.
  • Empty canvases in the middle of the ocean, on The Search.
  • These are the moments, the sessions, and the days we live for.
  • Another day another spot.
  • From dusk until dawn.
  • This is what it looks like when you leave Mick Fanning and Mason Ho to their own devices, in one of the most wave-rich archipelagos on our planet.
  • This. Is The Search.

The Search goes way out there. We take it as far as the Earth will let us go. In every ocean and in every sea, we seek the far reaches for waves mysterious and unknown. And we’ve found them and we’ve surfed them. Swells that break off glaciers, others that surge up rivers, and then, roping sand bottom rights that hiss like rattlesnakes as they grind and spit for over a mile long. These are the life changing sessions that will stay with you forever and inspire your next exploration and they are what the Search is all about. However… sometimes The Search is also something else entirely. Sometimes it can be less like exploration and more like stepping back in time.

"Indonesia first came onto my radar via the Jack McCoy surf flick Sons of Fun, and it wasn’t the pristine reeling green reefs of the Bukit that captured my attention either, it was the brown water peaks of Balian that had me losing my grommie mind. At that stage I’d never been overseas, and Bali in that film looked completely alien to me, but because those guys were having so much fun goofing off and ripping the bag out of the joint I knew it was a place I had to go. A year or two later I got my chance." – Mick Fanning on The Search.
