Samsung Barely Committing and Joel Parkinson Goes Flying – WSL

Samsung who signed a 1 year title sponsorship deal in 2014 has now committed to a “multi-year” term (meaning more then 1). Seems to us Samsung is keeping one foot in and one foot out!

“ASP Announces Title Sponsorship with Samsung for World’s Best Surfers – Thursday, February 20, 2014” – WSL

“Samsung Electronics extends World Surf League partnership for multi-year term” –

Joel Parkinson Resigns With Billabong

“I’m over the moon to know I will continue to be partnered with Billabong for many years to come,” said Parkinson from his home on the Gold Coast. “I’ve felt like I’ve been a part of a great big surfing family since I was a scrawny 11-year-old grom. When I got my first Billabong team sticker on my board it was one of the biggest moments of my life at the time, and I am happy and proud to still be flying that flag all these years later. It’s been a really good partnership for a long, long time, it’s helped me get to places I could never have dreamed, and I am seeing a lot of good things still to come in the future.”

Joel Parkinson Wins Oakley Pro Bali

1 – Joel Parkinson (AUS) 13.86
2 – Michel Bourez (PYF) 12.67

“That was amazing. That was the coolest experience coming up the sand. It wasn’t the greatest of the finals and I knew it wasn’t over. I figured if I got the best wave towards the end figured I’d have a chance. Michel (Bourez) ripped and was probably the most in form surfer of the event. I dropped off my four fin back to my three fin and just didn’t get a good pump in that one good barrel and was hoping it didn’t lose me the final. From then on I knew I had to go to do turns.” – Joel Parkinson
