O’Neill Team rider Jordy Smith has won stop number eight of the Association of Surfing Professionals World Championship Tour. Smith (ZAF) defeated John John Florence (HAW) in the final by a score of 16.50 to 15.87 in overhead surf at Lower Trestles.

The Hurley Pro victory marks the fourth career ASP WCT event win for Smith. “I am overwhelmed,” Smith said. “I just moved to town, I can’t believe it.”  Recently relocated to San Clemente, just up the road from Trestles, Smith was still feeling the support from South Africa, “I want to thank my boys from home, they have been giving me every bit of support all week.”

Previous to the win today, high expectations for Smith’s 2014 season had not developed in to results.  Smith’s win moves him from 14th to 11th on the ASP ratings, but more importantly gets him back to a mindset we are accustomed to seeing from one of the world’s best surfers.  “This year hasn’t gone as planned.   Winning another CT event gives me the confidence once again that I have what it takes to content for the world title.”

Watch the final here.

Jordy Smith Pre-Event Teahupoo

Jordy Smith Pre-Event Teahupoo: Straight off the Air Tahiti Nui flight from L.A in to 6’ – 8” foot Teahupoo, thats one way to wash off the plane grime. Waves were firing today and Jordy has stepped up a notch. After Fiji, Jordy spent 10 days here fine tuning without the circus and it has paid off; he was on the bombs and standing out. The forecast for the event is looking amazing, potentially a huge paddle swell (borderline tow) with epic conditions in between. This is going to be a good week!
