Apparently Parko has been toying around with the idea of putting a book together for some time now. Later this month, his first book “Parko+Friends” will drop. This isn’t going to be your regularÂ autobiographyÂ of his life as a pro surfer. It’s more of a book that shares the places he’s been and the friends he’s met along the way along with some excellent photos. What better then the inside jokes and stories that take place on surf trips with pictures to go with it?
Joel had this to say about the book:
“I just wanted a book that made people appreciate all the good times and good friends surfing has given â€˜em.”
PARKO+FRIENDS launches in Australia on February 18 and is available in bookshops or Billabong stockists. It will be launched in Europe and the US later this year.
