Joel Parkinson gewinnt Billabong Pipe Masters und den ASP World Title 2012

Nach 12 Jahren on Tour hat es Joel Parkinson nun endlich geschafft. Er hat mit dem Sieg der Billabong Pipe Masters 2012 nun endlich auch den ersten Weltmeister Titel geholt. Wirklich ein verdienter Sieg für den Australier. Kelly Slater musste sich im Halbfinale gegen Josh Kerr geschlagen geben und vergab somit die Chancen auf den Titel.Joel Parkinson

Nach dem packenden Finale Parko vs Kerzy letzte Nacht konnte er seine Freude kaum in Worte fassen:
“Consistency paid off, this is where I wanted to stand at the end of the year. This is what I’ve worked for my whole life. I can’t describe what this feels like. I’ve had runner-ups and ups-and-downs. I’ve been to hell and back and it makes this so much sweeter. All the love from Hawaii and Australia and over the world, I can’t thank you all enough for supporting me.
Right now, Pipe Master, World Title, it’s all surreal, I figured it was going to be a pressure cooker like a few years ago. I knew there was nothing I could do about it. It was about what I had to do, not about what he had to do. I thought, surely he (Slater) has got to peak because he had that heat with Shane (Dorian) and I knew Kerr is a danger man for him. When Kerr got that one, I felt like I was going to physically throw up. I couldn’t control my emotions at that point. One day you wake up feeling good the next day you wake up feeling like a loser. This morning I felt like a Champion when I woke up. Like Andy (Irons) always said ‘I got this, huh?’ I dedicate this to my family, Dad who used to take me to contests when I was 10, my wife and my mom and kids, this is all for us,” so Parkinson.

Kelly Slater suchte bei der Siegerehrung nach Erklärungen, wieso es bei ihm mit dem Titel nicht geklappt hat und so bleibt es weiter spannend ob er sein Wettkampfboard an den Nagel hängen wird oder nicht….
