Parko: Not Feeling The Pressure
JOEL Parkinson will soon board a plane on the Gold Coast and fly to Hawaii, land at Honolulu Airport, and drive to the North Shore. It‚Äôll be the 12th time he‚Äôs made the trip as a WT surfer. And, maybe the last time as a man who doesn‚Äôt own a world title.
He‚Äôs been close. He‚Äôs finished second in the world four times. Twice to Andy Irons, once to Mick Fanning and once to Kelly Slater. He now faces the latter two in a Pipeline decider for this year‚Äôs title.
#GoParko is the hashtag to throw him some support. #nopressureparko
