Jordy Smith And A Tube So Deep You'll Have To Watch It Thrice
South African visits Mexico to test surfboards, ends up discovering a fifth dimension.
Jordy Smith is single as fuck right now.
Not in the romantic sense—he's still happily wedded to the lovely Ms. Lyndall—but as far as surfboards go, the Tour's only Saffa is a wholly free man.
Since leaving Channel Islands just over a year ago, Jordy has sampled foam from many different makers, including Haydenshapes, JS, DHD, Chris Gallagher, and Sharp Eye—the latter three of which he brought down to Mexico last week for testing. The waves were stupendous.
Even before watching the clip, you probably have a decent idea of what Jordy did at the barreling righthand point. You probably also know what Tour stop he was preparing for on this visit (hint: it ain't Brazil!). But what you mightn't have guessed was the depth at which Jordy could ride a relatively small tube, particularly at the 1:49 mark of the film.
The boy was so far behind he had to retake the second grade.
So good we watched it thrice. And you?
