MICK FANNING (AUS) and his wife Karissa share a moment after Mick's win.   SEIGNOSSE, France (Sunday, September 27, 2009) - Mick Fanning (AUS), 28, has just claimed his second consecutive ASP Dream Tour event, taking out the 2009 Quiksilver Pro France presented by Orange over fellow Finalist Bede Durbidge (AUS), 26, in punchy one-to-three foot (0.5 - 1 metre) waves at Les Bourdaines...Event No. 7 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France opted to utilize today's swell to complete the event given the dismal surf forecast for the remainder of the waiting period.
