Joel Parkinson, also known as ‘Parko’, has been competing in the ASP at elite level events for over twelve years. Having grown up in Queensland’s Gold Coast, he was surrounded by world class waves from the get go, and went on to be the youngest surfer to win a Billabong event. In 2012 he took the title at the ASP World Championship Tour in Hawaii, after having come a close runner up four times before. Parko is regarded as one of the most talented surfers on the planet, due to his natural and seemingly effortless talent that just oozes style.
