The surfers on tour all have their own way to prepare for the start of each season. Some hit the gym, others spend their last precious moments milking the comfort of home before heading out on the road again, and some head to Snapper early. Not Jordy Smith though. He’s found his own personal African Snapper to warm up on, minus the hundreds of surfers suffocating it.

He may have been placed last in his first round heat at D-Bah, but this clip shows he’ll be dangerous once he gets his eye in, or the comp shifts back around the corner.
