In 2012 Cloudbreak got hit by a monster swell, and while the contest was called off until the surf dropped and most of the ASP's surfers opted out of playing chicken with fate, Joel Parkinson was one of the few that reveled in the conditions. He loves Tavarua and is dangerous in any conditions, but especially when it pushes over 10 or 12 feet.
