Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia. (Sunday, January 8, 2017) - With thousands of people packing out the headland at Burleigh Heads Joel Parkinson (AUS) took out the 2017 Burleigh Boardriders’ Single Fin Classic.<br />
<br />
The former world champion and current world number nine surfer battled against young up and comers and older Burleigh stalwarts for two day to win the event in front of a crowd of over 3000 people.<br />
<br />
“This is such an honour, I can’t believe how much fun this weekend has been,” Parko said later.<br />
<br />
It is the first time Parkinson had entered the event, where competitors surf on single fin pre-1985 surfboards.<br />
<br />
There is no prize money offered, so surfers battle for the prestige of the event, which has now been running for 20 years.<br />
