Bede Durbidge signed rash vest worn during the Rip Curl Search 2009 Final and on the podium.
One of the landmark events in pro surfing history - encompassing everything from XXL Supertubes through hurricanes to light offshore contestable conditions.
Bede and Mick met in the final for the second time in three events. Bede was the only one who could come close to putting the brakes on Fanning's title run. Bede's performances in this event, especially on the huge days were the stuff of pure grit and determination.
