It's always hard to figure where Jordy Smith's head is. He got married this offseason and has indicated that he intends to give a run at the 2014 title. But over the years he's demonstrated an innate ability to lose the plot at some point during the season. Injuries, movie projects, love: They've all distracted him and become excuses for not contending. But he has the talent to win anything, and with Jeffreys Bay in his native South Africa back on the schedule, there may be added incentive.
