Joel Parkinson and Sally Fitzgibbons Win at Bells

April 25th, 2011 by John Zanussi

  In what was one of the best, if not the best, Bells event in the 50 years of the contest’s history we saw clean pumping waves for the entire event along with absolutely amazing surfing from both the men and the women.
