Traveling between events is taxing even for someone with as many stamps in their passport as Jordy Smith. 14 boards, travel bags & camera equipment is just the tip of the iceberg. When you arrive and unpack your bags knowing that you will be in a place like Hossegor for the next 2 weeks its the best feeling in the world.
Stop No 7 is looking like the WT maker or breaker. With only 5000 points separating the top 4, this event will be vital for the eventual World Champ. Jordy is going into this event full of steam after finishing 3rd last week in Trestles and feeling like it could have been his if the cards had fallen his way.
Keep the top of the podium clear in Hossegor, Jordy has his abseiling kit ready for the summit.
