You know what they say about home cooking. Jordy Smith sure does. Oakley’s South African surf star toppled Mick Fanning on his home turf to emphatically rack up back-to-back Jeffreys Bay titles. The O team phenom employed superior wave selection in tough three-to-four foot conditions to take out Fanning with combined wave scores of 15.60 to 14.83 – powering Jordy up three places in the World Tour rankings to No. 2 behind Aussie Joel “Parko” Parkinson and just ahead of fellow O teammate Adriano de Souza.

Mr. Price Pro Ballito: Oakley Surf Team Drops In on Barrel Mania in South Africa, Jordy Smith Advances on Day 4
If a perfect 10 thrown down by Kolohe “Brother” Andino on the first day isn’t enough to demonstrate Oakley’s killer week at the Mr. Price Pro Ballito, a huge Day 4 victory by Jordy Smith will do the trick. O’s native South African star dominated the round by topping Sean Holmes – a wildcard who toppled veterans Cory Lopez, Taj Burrow, Andy Irons and Kelly Slater at J-Bay and turned industry heads. But it wasn’t an easy feat. Holmes brought the heat, throwing down a 6.5 and 7.5. Although Jordy raged back with powerful rides for a 6.5 and 7.5 (highest heat score of the day), he fully recognized the tough competition.
