Summary
"Mick Fanning and his brother Sean used to talk about some day. They used to tell each other that some day, they would be on the world tour together. They used to tell each other that some day, one of them would be world champion. August, 1998. A lifetime ago. Mick and Sean Fanning were at a party on the Gold Coast. Sean decided to get a ride home. Mick decided to walk. Sean and three others were in a car as it headed through Greenmount. Control of the vehicle was lost. There was an almighty collision. Two passengers in the back of the car were both local surfers, and they both died. One of them was Joel Green. The other was Sean Fanning. Nobody on the Gold Coast saw Mick Fanning for a while after that. Not the real Mick Fanning. The Dream Tour is what they call the world surfing championship - a frenetic ten-event race through Australia, Tahiti, Chile, South Africa, California, France, Spain, Brazil and Hawaii. They're ten of the most spectacular surfing locations on the planet. It s the hottest field in tour history, led by eight-time world champion Kelly Slater and the rest of The Big Five: Andy Irons, Joel Parkinson, Taj Burrow and Mick Fanning. They all have a story to tell and they're all told here. Some Day takes a notebook and dictaphone behind the roped-off areas of The Dream Tour. Ten events, a thousand twists and turns. Dozens of exclusive interviews. All the stories behind the stories. The bonds, rifts, heartaches, controversies, triumphs. Will Swanton is on Slater's shoulder when he wins at Trestles. He's on the stage with Burrow at Bells. He's on the sand with Fanning at Snapper Rocks. There are jaw-dropping pictures from the ASP's official photographer. The essence of each location is captured, riding the waves everywhere from the spiritual homes of Jeffreys Bay and Bells to the killing field of Teahupoo and the raw power of Pipeline. Never before has a book gone so far inside pro surfing. Never before has anyone covered the tour from the first event to the last. It's as close as you can get without pulling on a contest singlet yourself. Just two years after Mick Fanning tore his hamstring clean off the bone and feared he would never surf again, he finds himself leading the comp and in line to win the coveted world championship for the first time. His career should have been over but sometimes, when a man embarks on a mission, he can become impossible to stop
