Surf history beckons for Fanning

  • Surf history beckons for Fanning

    American Conner Coffin has eliminated star Joel Parkinson (pic) in a big upset at Bells Beach.

Top Australian surfer Joel Parkinson was eliminated at Bells Beach with a shock third-round loss to American tour rookie Conner Coffin.

The three-time Bells winner and former world champion had the lead before Coffin scored 8.17 in the last couple of minutes.

That gave the young American the win 16.27 to 14.56 and Parkinson threw away his board in disgust afterwards.

Fellow Australian Mick Fanning and South African Jordy Smith are the other heat winners so far on Monday.
