“I got to spend some time with him. I spent about two or three hours with him at his house, and he asked me if I’d been surfing. I said ‘yeah know I’ve been surfing around Santa Cruz, and you know, it’s really warm at the moment.’  Sure enough he just turned around and looked at me and goes, ‘you’re welcome.’” – Jordy Smith
