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.
