Jordy Smith surfing in Bali

Since I’m in the surfing mode and it’s Sunday I thought I’d post this video on Jordy Smith’s adventure (with Red Bull) in Bali:

It still never ceases to amaze me that the surfing world is not littered with serious injury! How do you manage to avoid all those bobbing bodies in the wave and water?

Jordy is, of course, a professional surfer from Durban, South Africa and famously shares a birthday with Kelly Slater. If that’s not a good omen I don’t know what is! He is well-known for the manoeuvres “rodeo flip” and full rotation “alley-oops’. The rodeo flip is regarded as the most high-performance manoeuvre ever executed on a wave.
