Parko’s Ten-Laced, Sweet, Sweet Victory at the Quik Pro Gold Coast

The judges at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast this go-around are serving out dimes like they’re going out of style. To the demise of a few fantasy surfer rankings, Parko’s undeniable victory yesterday was topped off with his second perfect ten of the day. Some solid waves and nearly flawless surfing led Joel Parkinson to the Gold Coast win and to the top of the ASP tour rankings. Bravo Parko.

Waiting on the edge of our swivel chairs over here to see what he brings to the next stop, Bells Beach.
