Sure, Joel Parkinson won the Oakley Pro, Bali. Sure, Julian Wilson, pictured here, scooped a fifth. But it’s the moments like this that you’ve gotta not let slip by. The arc of spray, the hint of fin, the intensity on Jules’ face, and the pinch of tree. These are the reasons this event was excellent.
