By RedBull.com Team on 14 February 2013 in Surfing
Ep one of 21Days tells the story of Mick and Joel heading into 2013’s first event at Snapper Rocks.
The first world tour event of 2013, the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast, is just about to fire up.

Two best friends since childhood, two top 10 world tour surfers. A strange but endearing relationship, that’s easily the most engaging element of the coming contest.
“21Days” is the first in a new series from Red Bull, that takes a microscope to relationships like Mick and Joel’s.

Mick and Joel’s story, chosen to kick off the series, is jamming both aesthetically (how could it not, the way these two surf), and dramatically (humility! Friendship!). As if you weren’t already burning with excitement for Snapper…
