The iSelect Gold Coast Titans wish to congratulate champion surfer Joel Parkinson after he claimed his maiden world surfing title at the weekend's Billabong Pipe Masters in Hawaii.
Parkinson, an avid fan of the Titans who regularly attends home games at Skilled Park in between his surfing commitments, reached surfing's holy grail after taking out the season-ending tournament at Oahu on Saturday.
News of Parkinson's triumph quickly swept through the Titans camp as players and coaching staff attended the club's annual Members Christmas Party at the Broadwater Parklands on Saturday.
Parkinson, who finished second in the world title race in 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2011, will return home to the Gold Coast later this week.
