Mick Fanning Awarded Second Highest Civilian Honour At Australia Day Awards

by

Three-time world surfing champion and now to be known as Mick Fanning, Officer of the order of Australia – that’s the news that Mick’s mother Liz Osbourne had the proud honour of delivering to him ahead of this year’s Australia Day commemorations and celebrations.

Fanning joins with fellow Australian former world surfing champion Layne Beachley as one of the few surfers to ever have the honour bestowed upon them.

“He wasn’t sure and when I told him it was the second top civilian honour, he was just speechless,” Liz told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

She added, “I said ‘Mick, you’re 35 years old, people wait a lifetime for this’ and he said ‘I can’t believe how honoured I am’ and I said ‘you know what, Mick? I’m honoured that you’re my son’.”

The honour is not just for his surfing achievements, but is deeply rooted in Mick’s charity work and his outward penchant for helping others.

He told the Gold Coast Bulletin he was “chuffed and very honoured” to be receiving the honour.

Congratulations to Mick Fanning AO !!!

First Cyclone Of Season To Deliver Late Christmas Present To Queenslanders

by

Early modelling shows solid chance of significant swell to hit Queensland surf breaks between Christmas and the new year.

It’s the season to get festive but traditionally the New Year’s Eve and Christmas period means the changing of the surf season for Queensland surfers.

Some ocean modelling sites are starting to show a solid chance that a strong tropical low or even a possible cyclone may develop in the Coral Sea after Christmas, and track south towards the South East Queensland coastline, generating some long-overdue storm swell for those in wait.

Whilst there is some variance in forecasts, all modelling shows either a solid low-pressure influence or weak tropical cyclone impacting the Coral Sea during the window, sending swell to arrive at South East Queensland by late Tuesday December 27th. The proximity of the system does however leave some room for improvement, with wave period not expected to exceed about 10 or 11 seconds for this swell.

Prevailing winds will mean the most protected breaks such as Kirra, Noosa and Greenmount will be the best options.

Dust off the shooters, get a good night’s sleep and get some fresh wax as we ring in the new year with some surf!
