Hurley Pro 2016 Final round Trestles Joel Parkinson vs. Jordy Smith

Final round of the 2016 Hurley Pro at Trestles. Flowmaster Joel Parkinson was up against it big time when he drew Jordy Smith in this round. Jordy was pulling off moves that should have been reserved for the little guys on the tour, and he had already mowed down U.S. Open winner Filipe Toledo, by realizing that nobody beats Filipe in the air game, so it would have to be done with smooth power moves, which is just what he did.

Hurley Pro 2016 Parkinson vs. Fanning vs. Jadson Andre, a classic matchup

Old friends and childhood rivals Joel Parkinson and Mick Fanning going at it, no mercy, with Jadson Andre playing the wildcard role, blowing up the lefts big time, like he didn’t have a care in the world. This was one of the most inspired rounds that Parko had, he combo’d the world champ with a couple of nines, not many people on tour can do that.
