Oakley Pro Bali 2013 Surf Review, congratulations Joel Parkinson

   Hi, yesterday was the last day of the Oakley Pro Bali 2013. I also made a post at the beginning of the 5th event of the ASP World Tour. In this event featured the best surfers in the World, including the 11 times World Champion Kelly Slater, the 2 times World Champion Mick Fanning and a lot of great surfers like John John Florence, Jordy Smith, Josh Kerr, Nat Young, Julian Wilson, Taj Burrow and off course, the defending Australian World Champion Joel Parkinson, who won the Oakley Pro Bali 2013 dropping massive scores during the whole event.

   As expected, the waves we're great, very hollow tubes and the possibility for crazy aerials, like the one from John John Florence, a huge alley opp. Let me show you that perfect 10, magic moment:

   I have to highlight the amazing tube riding of Josh Kerr who lost in the semi-final against Joel-Parkison; the Power surfing skills of Michel Bourez, who was amazing driving itself to the final; the 21 years old Nat Young was amazing, showing the older guys that he is up to the ASP World Tour. Also, John John of course, showing himself an amazing 21 years old surfer, pulling crazy aerials and amazing carvers. Did you know that he achieved the nº1 place in the HOT 100 surfers of surf magazine? The Kid is just crazy.

   Let me show you the final day highlights and results, bring to you from the website of ASP:
