About Jordy

Jordy Smith moved to the top of the ASP World Tour ranking's with a victory in the Billabong Pro J-Bay in his home country of South Africa in July, 2010. Having officially become the world's new number one going into the back half of the year, the ranking's finally reflected what many already thought - It's a matter of "when" and not "if" he'll be world champion. Finishing runner up in 2012, Smith carried that momentum back into 2011. Jordy then repeated his victory at the Billabong Pro J-Bay in 2011, and again, topped the ratings going into the back end of the year. An injury soon after stood between himself and the world title. Come 2012, he's fit, healthy and ready to claim that World Title and etch his name into the history books.

Smith established himself as one of the world’s best up-and-coming surfers in 2003 when he won the Quicksilver ISA World Junior Championships in his home town of Durban and never looked back. In 2006 he was crowned ASP World Junior Champion and ISA World Champion. Jordy then followed up, at the age of 19 years old, with the World Qualifying Series title in 2007, the second tier professional tour. This vicious attack and drive that he possesses has established Jordy as one of the most daring, innovative and most flexible competitors – despite his 188cm (6ft 2in) frame, in the world.
