19 year old Wildcard hailing from South Africa takes home the prestigious title and joins the rankings of some of the Surfing World’s best. In one of the most exciting spectator surf events, second only to maybe the Pipe Masters for proximity to the action, Jordy Smith shows the pack of very talented surfers what is to come. Check out this video I pulled from YouTube to see him in action.
On the winning wave Jordy matched the highest score ever in one of the longest running contests in Northern California scoring a 9.5 out of 10. Currently the ASP World Junior Champion, we can expect some good things from this powerhouse in the coming years.
