After taking a hiatus from the ASP World Tour schedule for the past couple of years, Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, is back on the schedule and the surfers couldn't be more stoked. The J-Bay power broker, Jordy Smith, won the past two world tour contests there, and arguably has surfed it better than anybody in recent years. Hungry for a win, and some recognition, he'll be looking to shake things up and notch a third win, but the field is stacked and it's no cakewalk to the top.
