Jordy

My longstanding attraction to surfing has always been through the elegance of style. Watching the way someone can navigate a wave, connecting moves, making every motion look effortless... it's why I see this sport more akin to an artform. And while there are many surfers I admire for their style in the water, Jordy Smith has distinguished himself on a level above all else. Jumping from Hawaii to South Africa to Indonesia this last year, I witnessed Jordy push his surfing to another level, as he paired his talent with his insane personal drive. Being courtside to him surfing, whether sweating on the shores of a jungle atoll or dodging coral reefs and white sharks with my waterhousing... it was like running with the bulls, witnessing a display of raw power and energy only so few have ever achieved athletically. direct/film/edit: Morgan Maassen Supported by O'Neill Music by: The Daze, SJD, Trees Speak
