Morgan Maassen | Jordy Smith surfing to another level


Video from Morgan Maassen

My longstanding attraction to surfing has always been through the elegance of style. Watching the way someone can navigate a wave, connecting moves, making every motion look effortless... it's why I see this sport more akin to an artform.

And while there are many surfers I admire for their style in the water, Jordy Smith has distinguished himself on a level above all else.

Jumping from Hawaii to South Africa to Indonesia this last year, I witnessed Jordy push his surfing to another level, as he paired his talent with his insane personal drive.

Being courtside to him surfing, whether sweating on the shores of a jungle atoll or dodging white sharks swimming with my waterhousing... it was like running with the bulls, witnessing a display of raw power and energy only so few have ever achieved athletically.
