Parko Flips Kelly the Bird

Posted on March 14th, 2013 by

By now everyone has seen either the highlights or the photo (below) of Joel Parkinson flipping a mid-barrel bird to Kelly Slater who, using priority, is about to drop-in on Parko and prevent him from getting the high score he needed. Surfing Life caught up with both surfers right after the final heat and got their thoughts of what went down. All in all both surfers took it in stride and had a laugh about it. That’s exactly the kind of sportsmanship I love to see.
