Jordy Smith Wins Hurley Pro at Lowers

Pro surfing rules. Sure it gets a lot of heat, and everybody has an opinion on the state of professional surfing, but at the end of the day it comes down to good surfing. And there was no shortage of it in this year's Hurley Pro at Trestles. From the aerials of JJF, Felipe Toledo, Gabriel and Kelly Slater to the rail games of Parko, Mick and Taj. And JJF and Slater. Gosh, just about everybody on tour has some mad rail game. How were those lines Adriano DeSouza was drawing? Mental. And how about Jordy Smith? Not a flaw in his game. Not the tiniest flaw.

If you haven't heard by now, Jordy Smith took out JJF in the men's final. Jordy won $100,000 and JJF took home $40,000. Not bad for doing something that comes so natural to both of them. JJF wasn't too bitter about losing to Jordy. If he was he didn't show it. His final was in the semis where he took out his arch rival, 42-year-old King Slater. John John later said it felt good to take out Kelly, that it was "payback" for their recent heat in Tahiti, which many claim to be the greatest heat of all time.

What's rad about Jordy's win, his first of the 2014 ASP/WCT season is that no one expected him to win. Everyone was guessing that it would be Slater, JJF and or Medina in the finals. Jordy surprised us all. But not really. He's pretty freakin' good.
