#GoParko from Billabong on Vimeo.

Now, ain’t this telling of the age we live in. Joel Parkinson will soon board a plane on the Gold Coast and fly to Hawaii, land at Honolulu Airport, and drive to the North Shore. It’ll be the 12th time he’s made the trip as a WT surfer. And, maybe the last time as a man who doesn’t own a world title. He’s been close. He’s finished second in the world four times. Twice to Andy Irons, once to Mick Fanning and once to Kelly Slater. He now faces the latter two in a Pipeline decider for this year’s title. And, as per Billabong’s suggestion, if you wanna rally behind Joel, just drop #GoParko in your Tweets and Instagrams. Will Joel look at it? Perhaps not! But, maybe it’s an every-drop-counts scenario.
