Surf Commentator Tezza McKennas take on 3P..

Like a fine red wine some things just get better with age and Parksey (as he is known to his mates) is a great example of this principle. As a junior competitor Paul showed good potential but never had the results that he wanted. But in typical 3P fashion, he knuckled down and trained longer and harder then most of his adversaries and came out of the blocks in the open division as a completely remodeled individual. He powered through the amateur scene at breakneck speed and jumped straight onto the WQS where he immediately rattled cages.

Attention to detail & focus on excellence has long been a trademark of his surfing and more recently this principle transferred to his shaping. Paul is a perfectionist and his boards now ride under the feet of many of Australia’s best surfers including Ryan Callinan, Jesse Adam and blah bla blah.

In 2013 Paul won the Australian over 35 Men’s title riding one of his 4-Fin contraptions that left the opposition in his wake, drawing speedy powerful lines in the small clean conditions. A down to earth bloke that has managed to blend intense enthusiasm and passion with methodical trademanship and establish the 3P label as one of the big movers in the high performance surfboard market. 3P should stand for Performance, Precision and Pricepoint.

Let Paul Parkes Productions take your surfing to the next level.

                                2013 AUSTRALIAN SURF MASTERS OVER 35 WINNER!!!

“Congratulations! Your the first surfer selected for the Australian team for next years World Masters Titles” Those were the first words that I heard last week after the hooter had sounded to end the Australian Masters Titles o/35’s final.

I hadn’t really thought much about it till then but that sounded really cool, I am going to represent my country in the sport I love and all because I make surfboards.

How might that come to be the reason you might ask?..Well, being a surfboard manufacturer I’m always searching for that perfect surfboard, not just for myself but for my customers as well, and the best way I can think of to do this is being involved in the performance end of our sport where I can watch surfers of all different levels try to surf their absolute best.

By analyzing the different techniques that surfers use to perform, I have been able to design several different models of surfboards to greatest enable myself and my customers to get the most out of their surfing.

So there you have it, I get to travel overseas and represent Australia, at the same time constantly refine and create new designs to improve our surfing experience.

Thanks for reading, see you in the water!!
