Things turned pear-shaped for Joel Parkinson and a few buddies yesterday when a “freak wave” capsized their boat on the Tweed bar during a fishing session.
Parko, along with three other people, were picked up 500m off the tweed river’s southern wall by the Volunteer Marine Rescue. Parko actually lives on the Tweed river, and is one of the keenest fisherman on the world tour, (Parko and Bruce Irons once spent as much time fishing as they did surfing at a Globe WCT event in Fiji.).
Is it just us, or does Joel seem as though he’s expecting a dressing down on the wharf? He does make a feeble attempt at anonymity and bolt past the press quick-smart. Perhaps it’s something to do with the a-grade celebrity status professional surfers are given on the Gold Coast. This is the Coolangatta equivalent of Lindsay Lohan flipping her car on Sunset Boulevard.
