Surfer | Joel Parkinson
When it comes to Joel Parkinson’s surfing, it’s as smooth and drawn out as it gets. A product of the sand bottomed points of Australia’s Gold Coast, Parko combines style, competitive prowess and free surf ability that few surfers can match. Joel’s success in a jersey is unrivaled, having won junior titles early on in his career, countless World Tour events, three Triple Crown titles and a World Title in 2012. One thing that sets him apart from others though is his good nature - a family man, a loyal friend and a truly great ambassador to the sport of surfing.
