Don’t Call it a Comeback: Joel Parkinson

November 21st, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Just over 4 months ago Joel Parkinson severely injured his heel while surfing at home in Australia and had his season literally cut short, less then a week before the Billabong Pro J-Bay was to start. In the time since his injury, he’s had surgery on his heel and has been working real hard to get back to competing with his friends and the rest of the world’s best. Joel probably was feeling good enough to surf in the Rip Curl Pro Search Puerto Rico but with no chance at finishing high in the rankings this year, he made the right move to hold off and continue his recovery. One event he was not going to miss out on was the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. Being that Parko is the defending champion for the past two years, you know he wanted to be in top form for this event and try and make it 3 years in a row. More »
