  • Jordy Smith’s Dad’s Shaping Factory Robbed!

    Jordy Smith's Dad's surfboard shaping factory is robbed the day before the hotly anticipated Quiksilver Pro heat between Jordy and Joel Parkinson.

    Speaking in an interview to World Pro Surfers (the video can be seen on YouTube) Jordy’s Dad, Graham Smith speaks of how he’s certain it was an inside job! The thieves took computers, tools, laptop, hard drives… that contained a lifetime of info from surfboard shapers around the world and includes years of Jordy’s board dimensions.

    Parko speaks in the interview too of how crucial refined board measurements are when staging a title campaign.
