Join Parko and Occy for a night of stories, successes and shenanigans from world champions!

Featuring: Live interview discussion, film clip highlights and audience Q&A!

Thanks to Barrett Homes, 2012 World Champion and surfing legend, Joel Parkinson, is heading to the Bay with his good mate Occy, for an exclusive night of insights and tales from Joel's incredible career.

Having recently retired from the pro tour last year, Parko's nearly 20 years as a professional has seen him become one of the most heralded surfers of his generation. Known as one of the most naturally gifted guys on tour, he is also one of the most popular. With his down to earth nature and likeable Aussie charm, make sure you're there to meet the man in person!

Get up close and personal as you hear Joel discuss his life and career; the extreme highs, the lowest lows, and everything in between. Relive the moments that defined Parko's symbolic rise to the top, and what kept him going for so long.

This is your chance to witness a world legend right here at NZ's hottest beach spot, alongside his friend and fellow surf icon, Occy!

Don't miss out. Up close and personal means exactly that - it's an intimate room with limited capacity.
