Frame grabs show Jordy’s mastery at his home break…and the front page shows the moment before his injury.
Silver Linings Episode 4 – DURBAN Every surfer has a home break that has shaped their surfing.
For @JordySmith88, without Durban, he wouldn’t be the progressive surfer he is today.
It is no doubt that Durban’s punchy beach breaks and rip bowls are responsible for the versatile and high-performance surfing Jordy has done throughout his surfing career.
Not to mention, when Durban turns on and the sandbars make up the freight train running right-hand barrels, you know Jordy will be out there hunting down the wave of the day.
Unfortunately for Jordy, (what he thought was) the wave of the day ended up costing him a serious knee injury which would later force him to pull out from the Olympics and the 2021 World Title Race.
Stay tuned for Episode 5 to follow along through Jordy’s recovery.
