Billabong Joel Parkinson Surf Camp Powers to a Finish at Surfing Australia HPC

Surfersvillage Global Surf News
, 13 April, 2011 : - - Casuarina, New South Wales -- Joel Parkinson made a VIP appearance at Surfing Australia’s High Performance Centre this week, with the three-time Hawaiian Triple Crown champion stopping by for his Billabong Joel Parkinson Surf Camp.

Despite joining the early exit list at the Margaret River Pro in Western Australia last week, Parko wet his rails at Casuarina, going for a quick surf before sharing his surfing knowledge with a swag of star-struck junior surfers.

“It was cool to surf and chill out with the kids,” said Parkinson, who is known for his graceful yet powerful surfing style. “As a young surfer growing up I always looked to gain extra knowledge from older surfers, so I feel honoured to pass on some pointers.”

The three day camp, which started on Monday and finished on Wednesday, was designed to give surfers (aged -17) a once in a lifetime opportunity to surf, hang out and soak up all the valuable knowledge and surfing tips that Parkinson and the HPC coaches have to offer.

Junior surfers participating in the camp included:

Lachlan Englis
William Englis
Etienne Prestage
Kalani Prestage
Reef Heazlewood
Emerson Hynard
Jade Procee
Harley Webster
Corey Webster
Luke Chaffer
Eddie White
Harm Kassulke
Tom Antonie
Issac Elias
James Taylor
Aurelio Prieto
Connor Bourke

The camp included coaching from Australia’s finest fully accredited surf coaches, video analysis of each surfing session, Silicon Coach DVD, product bags from Billabong and of course the opportunity to meet and surf with Parko. The Billabong Joel Parkinson Surf Camp was based at the Surfing Australia HPC at Casuarina Beach which is just 15 minutes south of the Gold Coast.

The camps facilities, resources and coaches cater for all surfing levels, from surfers looking to complete that first cutback all the way to launching and landing aerial manoeuvres.
