Parko’s Road to the World Title

After competing at a world class level for twelve years, winning eleven elite ASP World Title Events, plus nine additional ASP tour events, and achieving runner-up second place to the ASP World Title four times, Joel Parkinson won his first ASP World Championship Tour Surfing Title on 14 December 2012 in Hawaii at the Banzai Pipeline during the ASP World Tours' final event for 2012–the Billabong Pipeline Masters.

It was not an easy road for Parko, but in the end he managed to prove that he is a true champ, driven by passion and determination. The video below, part of a digital magazine to celebrate Joel Parkinson's maiden ASP World Title, showcases important moments in his road to victory, by presenting competition highlights, interviews with Billabong founder Gordon Merchant, with close friends and family and more.
