Drug Aware Margaret River Pro - Jordy Smith highlights

Round One

Jordy Smith has known surfing was for him for a while now.

The scene at New Pier, a surf break in Jordy’s hometown of Durban, is the kind of place that requires respect, hard work, and a good attitude to climb the ranks of the pecking order. A fast hollow right that is known for heavy localism, New Pier taught Smith how to excel in both small and large hollow surf. These are all traits that come naturally to this young superstar who has a surfing history longer than most. At the age of three, Jordy’s father, a shaper and surfer himself, began driving him to the local beaches and pushing him into waves. “Smitty” or “Superfreak” as Jordy is also known, took to surfing early on, and by time he was 15  knew that this sport was his calling.
