In true world champ fashion Joel Parkinson executed a buzzer beater to rob Michel Borez of the coveted Baron mask and an oversized Oakley check for $75K.



Parko scored the elusive perfect 20pt ride, bettering John John’s 19.2 in the 5th round… almost making it look too easy in the super sectiony wedges of Keramas.

Parko described his winning strategy “I dropped off my four fin back to my three fin (FMN) I knew I had to go to do turns to win.” Joel also claims its the “best board ever” and guess what….we have it! Find out more about the Forget Me Not by JS Indsutries
