Watch: Jordy Smith // Beyond Mexico

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

If this clip was a CT heat, Jordy Smith would be docked points for lack of variety, focussed as he is on the barrel and nothing but the barrel. It was shot during a recent trip to Mexico's south-facing points and his insatiable instinct for the pit makes a welcome respite from the CT criteria that demands every box be ticked.

Great waves. Shame they had to put it to that same annoying guitar riff over and over.. like a monkey with a miniature cymbal

to be expected. the choice of audio for surf clips is usually informed by either a mid-life crisis or a total lack of taste in music or both. wouldn't mind a having a chomp at a couple of those right handers though.

Agree on both fronts. Killer waves. And lousy crappy sounds to accommodate them. Pick a decent track. There are many or just stick to the beach sounds
