    Joel Parkinson earned the win at the Hawaiian Pro, Saturday at Haleiwa on Oahu’s North Shore. It’s the first event of the 2018 Triple Crown of Surfing and Parkinson has taken the early lead. Parkinson, a three-time Triple Crown winner, is retiring at the end of this season.

Former world champion Joel Parkinson announced earlier in the year that he would be retiring following this 2018 season. His reasoning for that decision included the notion that he no longer has the desire to put the jersey on.
