Ear­lier this year dur­ing the Quik Pro Gold Coast, Joel Parkin­son was un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally ousted in the early rounds of com­pe­ti­tion. In­stead of stick­ing around the con­test site at Kirra to see how the fi­nal day would play out, the Gold Coast na­tive de­cided to turn his le­mon of a loss into sweet, sweet lemon­ade and went for a surf at all-time Snap­per Rocks. The im­age fea­tured on the cover is just a snap­shot of what many peo­ple claimed was the best bar­rel ever surfed at the famed right point. It’s hard to imag­ine a fu­ture where bar­rel rid­ing looks any bet­ter than this.
