Joel Parkinson Surfs Because…

What a year for Joel. Losing a title, losing a heel, losing a friend. But then he scored a 19.87 in his first heat back from injury and won the Reef Hawaiian Pro. He’s gunning for a third straight Vans Triple Crown title. And the frontside red board cutback at the end of this short film from Billabong may be the smoothest carve since Curren on the yellow rails, in that iconic Tom Servais photo. Time heals. Joel will be alright.
