South Africa's Jordy Smith lost the Jeep Leaders' jersey in France, which means he's now in hot pursuit of current World No. 1, John John Florence. Regardless of what Florence does here at the MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal, Smith can force the World Title battle to Hawaii if he can make it to the Quarterfinals. He got a good start in Round One with a win over wildcard Vasco Ribeiro and Italo Ferreira. He didn't need much in the tricky conditions. He won the heat with a 9.20 total.
