Watch: Parko's Last Lap: Tahiti | Billabong

COASTALWATCH | BEST OF THE WEB

“I was just frozen stiff.” - Joel Parkinson on his first ever event at Tahiti.

Now his 17th and final year, Joel has had plenty of Perfect 10's out at Teahupo’o, made multiple finals, and had one close 2nd against his best mate, Mick Fanning.

In this epic clip, Parko talks about putting in the time in Tahiti at one of the deadliest waves on the planet, getting more relaxed in heavy situations, and how he’s certain he won ‘that’ final in 2012. Of course, Fanning tells it a little bit differently.

One of the most insightful and hilarious interviews you’re likely to see with two of surfing’s all time greats.

Enjoy. Billabong
