OBJECTIVE: To reinvent the profile of Mick Fanning
The Taylor Steele-directed film, Missing, put world surfing champion Mick Fanning into some of the most radical places on earth alongside his good friends John Florence, Jordy Smith, Matt Wilkinson and Tom Curren.
The project took Mick off the world surf tour, gave him a boarding pass with a blank destination and, for 21 days, he travelled with only a passport, suitcase and surfboard. The resulting surfing is impulsive and raw.
From Africa and Ireland to Central America and Spain, the experience became, literally, life changing for Mick Fanning.
