Travis Logie

When Jordy Smith qualified for the World Tour in '07 it appeared that South African surfing was on the rise. And while Smith's continued to progress, his fellow countrymen haven't had quite such good fortune. Travis Logie was on tour with Smith during his rookie year, but promptly fell off at season's end. Well, Logie's back this year, and will be looking to pick up where he left off. A string of good results on the WQS in '09 helped him get back on tour, for South Africa's sake, let's hope he stays there for awhile this time. (Joli)
