Watch: Just Jordy
We've heard little from Jordy Smith this year, or indeed any pro surfer, however he's been an industrious fella starting up a board label SMITH Shapes with his old boy Graham.
The website lists Graham as the sole shaper, however it alludes to Jordy also working in that capacity with many mentions of his love of shaping, including this nugget of trivia:
"As a grom playing in his father’s factory, Jordy showed a keen interest and dedication to the world of surfing and surfboard design. This led him to win his first U8 South African Championship in 1996 on his own-shaped board!"
An 8-year old surfer/shaper!
Anyway, this vid isn't about SMITH shapes, but is instead an ode to a favourite subject put together by Morgan Maassen.
