With John John leaving O’Neill for Hurley it comes as no real surprise that the brand decided to re-sign a 5-year contract with Jordy Smith, who’ll be entering his 5th year on tour. After a couple of rather lack-lustre seasons on tour (at least for someone who was so hyped as a serious World Title threat when he made the tour) and his profile movie Bending Colours out the way, you can bet Jordy will be looking to put things straight again this forth-coming year.
“The last five years with O’Neill have been unbelievable. They have given me so much freedom and yet so much support at the same time. I have built a relationship with O’Neill in which they help me out in so many different aspects of my life, and not just in surfing.” Jordy Smith.
