Thats right, Jordy Smith schooled the pro tour! Two high 9’s in 4 minutes, then snapped a leash and did the run around, while the poor goofy footers in his heat anxiously tried to compete while in combo land. Jordy popped back into the lineup and promptly caught the wave of the day, absolutely destroyed it and got a perfect 10. He clearly wants to defend his title at Jbay.
Other standouts living in Jordy’s rather large shadow, were Josh Kerr ripping and pulling the first Kerupt Flip at Jbay, Kai Otton with one of the best tubes of the day taking out Parko and Mick Fanning. Local wildcard, Dylan Lightfoot surfed super well against Kelly Slater in Round 1 and Gabriel Medina in Round 2. He did not get through, but certainly did not embarrass himself either. The experience of surfing against these guys will have been an invaluable learning experience for the young man.
