Parko gets his first win of the 2013 ASP season in barreling surf at Keramas.
After his perfect heat in the fifth round of the Oakley Pro Bali, it started to feel that Joel Parkinson might be due. The defending ASP world champion had two 13th place finishes early in the season so if he wanted to regain the title he was going to have to start winning soon. Parkinson did exactly that in Bali, outpointing Michel Bourez in the final for his first ASP tour victory of the year. Parkinson's win propelled him to third place in the world rankings, while Mick Fanning's quarterfinal appearance helped him move into the overall lead ahead of Kelly Slater.

Lower Trestles is often referred to as a skatepark for surfers because the mechanics of the wave set up so well for progressive maneuvers. The wave draws surfers from all over the world, but Australians have taken a particular liking to the wave. As part of Network A's Surf Week, check out some of the best surfers from Down Under shred Lowers. Parkinson, Fanning, Taj Burrow, and Julian Wilson are just some of the Aussies that rip this clip.
