Saturday wasn't Jordy Smith's best day. In the morning, he barely survived his Round Three heat with wildcard Jesse Mendes. And in the afternoon, during the non-elimination Round Four, he took a board to the face while on his way to last place.
Fortunately for Smith, that was yesterday. On Sunday that was all water under the bridge. The fact that he was up against Jeremy Flores, one of Saturday's strongest performers, didn't phase him. He found his free-flowing form again, locking in a solid 9.00 in the tricky conditions to take the win.
