3x world champion Mick Fanning surfed his last heat on surfing's world tour last week. As a tribute to the surfing legend, Red Bull has released an exclusive animation, documenting Mick Fanning’s incredible life. Told through the voice of Mick Fanning, the animation follows the surfing legend’s journey to the top and reveals what’s in store for his next chapter. Mick Fanning, winner of 3 world titles and a staggering 22 championship tour events, surfed through round after round of nail-biting competition at the Rip Curl Pro to make the final of his last-ever contest as a member of surfing's Championship Tour last week. Mick hoisted his maiden Dream Tour trophy at Bells Beach back in 2001 when, as an 18-year-old wildcard, he defeated Danny Wills to ring his first Bells trophy. Seventeen years on he came oh-so-close to ringing the Bell for a record-breaking fifth time, but was pipped at the final post by rampaging Brazilian superstar Italo Ferreira. As for what’s next for Mick, it’s no surprise to anyone that he is going to continue surfing. As we speak he's already thinking about packing his bags for his inaugural strike mission as a free surfer. But the main goal for Mick is one that he has been working on for a while, and that is to be a better person, a reliable a friend, a loving and brother, and raise awareness of the challenges facing our environment.

Relive Miles Daisher’s remarkable career as he attempts to reclaim the world record for most BASE jumps in 24 hours. Around 10:35am on June 21st — the summer solstice — BASE jumper Miles Daisher’s worn, dusty sneakers left the railing of Idaho’s Perrine Bridge for the 62nd time in less than 24 hours. And by the time the parachute opened and he soared gently down to a painted bullseye along the bank of the Snake River, he recovered a world record that’d slipped away from him just last year. But at that exact moment, he’d simultaneously cemented his name atop the upper echelon of BASE jumpers, skydivers and wingsuit pilots in the world. It was then that Daisher once again held three world records: most human-powered BASE jumps in 24 hours; the highest total BASE jumps in one year; the most BASE jumps in a lifetime.
