Video Footage Of Parko’s Horrific Cut

Lady luck is just not on the side of Joel Parkinson… The perennial ASP World Title contender recently sustained one of the worst fin cuts imaginable while surfing his home break, Snapper Rocks in Coolangatta. Like Mick Fanning said, “Man, sometimes luck just doesn’t go your way, does it?” According to the clip, Parko needed 30 stitches to close the wound, but somehow took it all in stride, saying, “Ya reckon I’ll be in the water tomorrow?” as he was loaded into an ambulance.
