Joel Parkinson and Teahupo'o - 16 Years Later

It’s been 16 years since Joel Parkinson made the pilgrimage to the End of the Road and stared down Teahupo’o. In the time since, he’s had more than his fair share of the barrels, and punishing wipeouts, that only Teahupo’o can administer.

Learn more about Parko and his relationship to this special stop on the CT in this interview.
