The WSL surfers all have numbers on their jerseys this year. All have picked a number that has some sort of special meaning to them and this is what Jordy Smith has to say about his #23 he picked for his jersey.

“Pretty happy about the history of my number… First of all I chose the number 23 because of Michael Jordan. When I was young I always wanted to be great at a sport and I shared the same with names with him, only mine is Jordan Michael. To add to it my house number for 23 years was number 23… Kinda weird.. My parents did not plan this I swear. When I was around 3 or 4 my parents got me into soccer and I grew to really love it. I still enjoy playing the odd game with friends when I get a chance! Because of this I grew up watching David Beckham, one of the worlds best and most iconic sportsmen alive and now that Ive been spending a lot of time in the U.S., I can’t leave out the man Le Bron James… So for me in a nutshell it’s an honor to wear this number in 2015 as great sportsmen before me have and still do…..there is also Shane Warne an incredible cricket player…”
