Isn’t this proof of the darling (and, daring!) age we live in. Soon, real soon, Joel Parkinson will hop a plane from the Gold Coast to Hawaii. He will probs drive straight from Honolulu Airport to the North Shore. It’s the twelth time he has made the trip as a World Tour surfer. And, perhaps, the last time as a man who doesn’t own a world title. Been super close, finished second four times. Twice to Andy, once to Kelly and once to Mick Fanning. In the Pipeline decider he is up again the later two for this year’s title. And, as per Billabong’s suggestion, if you wanna rally behind Joel, just drop #GoParko in your Tweets and Instagrams. Will Joel look at it? Perhaps not! But, maybe it’s an every-drop-counts scenario. How do you think he will go?
