Just in case you missed the action in Jeffreys Bay yesterday at the Billabong Pro, here is a video of Jordy Smith’s opening heat. There was some great barrel riding from Sean Holmes and Adam Melling as well in small and sectioning Supertubes.
However, Jordy decided to go the aerial route and pulled off a few serious moves that saw him post the highest scores of the day.
