Mick Fanning: no fear at Shipstern Bluff | Photo: Adam Gibson/Red Bull

Mick Fanning has ridden some of the thickest and most dangerous waves of his life, at Shipstern Bluff, in Tasmania.

The Australian surfing champion returned from Teahupoo and immediately traveled to Devil's Point with big wave surfer Mark Mathews. The iconic reef break was pumping solid barrels.

"Had the funnest day ever yesterday with the boys at Shippies! Thanks for the call and thanks to all the Tassie crew for being ultimate legends, especially Zeb Critchlow for whipping me into this thing!" wrote Mick Fanning.

Shipstern Bluff is also known for its sharky waters. What better way to overcome the Jeffreys Bay incident than riding treacherous caverns surrounded by the apex predators.

Tyler Holmes-Cross, Brent Dorrington, Ryan Hipwood, and the "Mad Hueys" were charging hard at Shipstern Bluff, but the five-meter waves on offer also claimed its uninjured victims with a few spectacular wipeouts being served in cold water.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved surfing's qualification system for the Tokyo 2020.
