Mick Fanning has won his third World Surfing title on the closing day of the tour season at the Pipe Masters in Hawaii.

All three titles have come in a six-year period for the 32-year-old Australian with a thrilling victory over fellow Australian Yadin Nicol in the Quarter-Final.

Fanning was only required to reach the Semi-Finals of the round to see off 11-time World Champion Kelly Slater, which he did on his final wave of the Quarters with a score of 9.70.

Fanning said: “I’m just overwhelmed with emotion right now, its incredible.”

He later bowed out in the Semi-Finals to local surfer, John John Florence before Slater went on the win his seventh Pipe Masters 16.37 to 15.90.
