Jordy Smith recently won his first WQS event of the season riding a favourite 6’2″ Joistik, shaped and designed by Nick Blair. Jordy took top honours in the 4* Hot Tuna Central Coast Pro this year in Soldiers Beach, Newcastle over the weekend and secured some valuable early points in the WQS race. The magic stick took Jordy through 5 heats, all the way through to the final, on the final day. It was the same board Jordy had been riding throughout the Australian leg up until now, almost earning him a spot in the Quiksilver Pro Trials a few weeks earlier.
Each year Jordy Smith picks up a quiver when he visits Australia. I grew up shaping in Durban and gaining inspiration from Jordy’s dad Graham so its good to catch up every year. At the moment he is riding Fixed fins so I am making him boards with a variety of MF+ and D3 Fixed fins.

He looks all set for another huge year and looks a certain to qualify for the World Tour over the next couple of years.
