Aside from launching the new Mercedes Benz Ute, Mick Fanning has also been busy with his long time sponsor Creatures of Leisure. Today he's announced that he's joined the company's ownership group after the talks of his future were discussed in recent contract negotiations. 

Fanning first joined the Creatures of Leisure team at just 16-years-old and has stayed loyal to the brand who make some of the world's best and most progressive surf gear. He has said the opportunity couldn't come at a better time as he continues planning his future.

"Creatures of Leasure have been doing a great job for 30 years... I picture my role being more as a sounding board, and working on the research and development front, which has always been something I've enjoyed." Fanning said.

So expect to have a little bit of Mick Fanning in every Creatures product you buy from now on. "I'm really looking forward to getting my hands a little dirtier to create the best and most user-friendly products on the market." Said Fanning.
