Jordy Smith // France // 4:32

At the ripe age of 26 years old, Jordy Smith is starting to hit his stride on the ASP World Tour. He’s a grown-up now and he’ll be damned if his surfing doesn’t show it. Rather than putting out your run of the mill web clip, the big man gives us a bit more here. It’s like a surf porn/video interview hybrid. He talks about wave pools (and surfs the Wave Garden), contest results, filming and aspirations. And he manhandles waves throughout the whole damn thing. It’s probably worth noting the backflip at 2:45 if you haven’t already seen it. Would it be all that far-fetched to call Jordy the frontrunner for the 2014 world title?
