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!
Unpacking the quiver
The Honda ready to go.
A Suzuki, a pit and a flying fish.
It all kicks off tomorrow and just so you’re in the loop Tahiti time is 3 hours behind PST. If it starts at 7 AM local time, that will be 10 AM PST. Jordy will be in Heat 12 of Rd 1.
