Jordy Smith through to final 16 at Rip Curl Rottnest Search

The Rip Curl Rottnest Search recommenced yesterday in 3- 4 foot surf at Strickland Bay.

The women’s Quarterfinalists were determined after completing the Round of 16, and the men’s draw narrowed down the top 16 following the Round of 32.

South African Jordy Smith advanced to the final 16 with a convincing victory over injury replacement Stuart Kennedy.

Smith posted a two-wave combination of 14.17, mixing his trademark rail game with some impressive progression to continue his momentum after his second place finish at the Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro which got his world title campaign back on track.

Unfortunately JBay local Matt McGillivray was defeated by Owen Wright in his heat in the round of 32.
