Eight perfect scores | WSL Corona J-Bay Open
The 2017 Corona J-Bay Open went down in history thanks to the worlds top surfers throwing down 10, after 10, after 10. There were eight 10 point rides to be exact, two of which happened in Jordy Smith’s perfect heat. With the level of surfing getting pushed higher and higher each year it’s tough to say what we will be seeing this time next year.
We’ve compiled each of these 10 point rides so you can see what perfect surfing looks like when the conditions and athletes line up on one of the worlds best waves, Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa.
