Taking advantage of a brief scheduling pause in the 2013 ASP world tour, current champ Mick Fanning made haste to the islands off Panama with legendary shooter Ted Grambeau. He wasn’t expecting much. Mick had agreed to let Ted call the shots, and to follow along like an eager lab pup wherever Ted aimed the itinerary. No buzzers, no jerseys, no probing media…a busman’s holiday. The Caribbean side of Central America is no pleasure pit. Densely forested, with a coastline torn asunder by huge river flow and treacherous sandbars, it’s a Miskito Coast from the Yucatan to the Darien. But Ted being Ted, there was a payoff. See what they got into.
