Lee-Anne Pace takes a surfing lesson from two-time world champion Mick Fanning

Lee-Anne Pace and Mick Fanning on the Gold Coast in Queensland

South African Lee-Anne Pace had a lesson of a different kind after the third round of the Gold Coast RACV Australian Ladies Masters in Queensland.  The 30-year old, who loves surfing and the beach, received a lesson from two-time world surfing champion Mick Fanning.

Pace revealed she was: “Very excited but nervous about getting a lesson with Mick.”   

Fanning, who had just got back from a quick trip to Indonesia to “chase the swell”, was more than happy to give the 2010 Ladies European Tour Money List winner a few tips to help with her surfing.  He gave her some tips on the sand before heading into the surf. 

After the lesson, the two-time world champion, said, “I think golf and surfing are similar in terms of the mental attitude and having to be patient, and the core strength of it all is definitely similar, you have to have it all in the middle.

“Lee-Anne did great, stood up first go and by the end she was turning: she should be a pro surfer!” added Fanning, with a laugh.

Pace said: “It was awesome. He actually taught me quite a lot today. I actually got my balance a lot easier, so I am now really excited to go back to South Africa and give it a try, he is such an awesome guy, so down to earth. I have actually invited him for a bit of golf when he comes to J-Bay... so hopefully we can meet up.”
