Mick Fanning has beaten Taj Burrow in the finals of the Rip Curl Pro yesterday. The comp was shifted to Winkipop after the womens event wrapped up where small but clean conditions kept things moving and a decent crowd entertained. By the finals, the swell was diminishing fast. Fanning got some good scores on the board with an 8.83 and an 8.00. Late in the final Burrow was in need of some magic which he pulled out with a 9.63 but from then on, it just wasn’t his day. Finals scores were Fanning at 16.83 and Taj at 13.46. Check the highlights video from the day above.
