Jordy Smith sets sights on world title


Ten years ago, Jordy Smith won the World Junior Championship. Now he sits on the brink of fulfilling a life-long dream of adding the coveted senior title to his name.

JOHANNESBURG - South Africa’s Jordy Smith is in prime position to claim surfing’s premier prize.

He heads to Europe next month to compete in France and Portugal with a commanding lead at the top of the WSL Championship Tour standings.

Smith is in fine form at the moment having finished second at last week’s Hurley Pro in California.
