In the last event of his competitive career, three-time WSL Champion Mick Fanning (AUS) will battle Owen Wright (AUS) today in the second Quarterfinal matchup of the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

"I've learnt so much and I walk away with so many great memories, not only in the surf but on land and travelling with people, so thank you", he said.

While there were tears, Fanning otherwise cracked jokes and paid rich tribute to Ferreira, who claimed his first title on the world tour.

Australian surfing legend Mick Fanning has missed out on a fairytale ending to his career with a record fifth win at Bells Beach, losing out to Brazil Italo Ferreira in the final of the Rip Curl Pro. Just to see how much it meant to Italo made me feel better.

Fanning had progressed to the final by beating American Patrick Gudauskas in this morning's semi-finals and good friend Owen Wright in the quarter-finals in flawless conditions.

She is the first Australian victor of the women's title at Bells since 2012 and Gilmore most recently rang the iconic Bell trophy in 2010. "I always wanted to finish here at Bells". Hope I see you there'. Former champion surfer Martin Potter, now a commentator for World Surf League, described it as an "incredible way to go out".

"You try and bring words to thank them, from what we've been through. good, bad, funny".

Fanning, 36, grew up on the Queensland-NSW border and came to prominence at the Australian national titles in 1996.

Fanning, 36, won the Bells Beach event as a wildcard in 2001.

In 2004, he suffered a career-threatening injury while surfing in the Mentawai Islands off Sumatra, tearing his hamstring off the bone.

"I'm just happy to be alive", he said immediately - and tearfully - afterwards.

He was back in the water less than a week after the encounter.

Throughout their marriage, Dalton, a former swimsuit model turned wedding blogger, had chosen to focus on her career rather than interviews and the social circuit.

When he announced his retirement on Instagram he said he didn't have the drive to surf every day.

"When I got teary on stage, it was just the family", he said.
