The 2016 Burleigh Single Fin Festival celebrated its 20th anniversary last weekend in classic Gold Coast summer swell. It wasn't just the great weather that brought the crowds, that great fun and nostalgic vibe that fills the air when the single fins come out to play made it one unforgettable weekend. 

It was an especially great event for local, Parko who took out the milestone event win. With 2017 looking like potentially one of their fierce in a long time as Kelly Slater winds down on this last official year before retirement, some are tipping Fanning and Parko to go hard against their fellow veteran surfer and retiree. Is this the kick start that Parko needs for 2017? Can't wait to see. 

After a week of average waves, here's Parko's 10-point-ride from last weekend.
