How did it stack up to your expectations?
I was so excited heading up there, just bouncing around the car." Continued Parko "I expected it was going to be tricky to surf and Garrett had told me that and he was pretty well right. It just moves around so much that even a guy like Garrett says you can never really get it too wired out there. You've just got to really hunt the waves down.
Any memorable moments out there?
"It was really fun. Even though it was a little smaller than I thought it was going to be I was still a little wary heading out. I had two vests on, and Garrett was into me telling me to feel it out first before doing anything silly. But in the end I got a couple of nice rights from down on the second peak, as well as a couple of lefts on the main peak, and I didn't get taken out by anything. It looks like one of those places that could be really sketchy if you got caught in the wrong spot at the wrong time. I got to give props to the local guy Joel, he paddled into a couple which was pretty nuts.
"I had one double-up right, which I think was my second wave. I could've pulled up into it I think and come out but I kinda raced it because I had no idea of the pace of the wave. But it was such a cool scene cause there were hundreds of locals up on the cliff and my family were up there watching and everyone was just going off whenever we got a wave. It was such a cool scene."
