Between the shark bites and drama surrounding whether or not the Margaret River Pro should run, Jordy Smith decided to surf and produce two short edits.

An escape? A statement? A clip-stack? Just wanting some fun waves? Regardless of his reasoning for paddling out, it’s a shame Jordy-currently ranked 20th on the World Surf League’s Jeep Leaderboard-will not be able to unleash that rail work in some heats to move up a few spots. Safety first.
