21 DAYS: JORDY SMITH AND CJ HOBGOOD
In the lead up to Tahiti, Jordy gets engaged and CJ kicks back with the family back in Florida.
Who doesn't love a bit of "behind the scenes" insight in to what the world's best get up to between tour legs? Anything to mix up the relentless mind-numbing 100% action web clips we get bombarded with every day, right? And that's what Red Bull's 21 Days series is all about:
"It’s OK to be really, really excited about this installment of 21Days. It’s probably our most interesting installment yet. CJ Hobgood, 2001 World Champion, is already making eyes for life beyond the World Tour — the only problem is that he’s too goddamn good to leave. Meanwhile, Jordy Smith is on the opposite end of the spectrum. He is just beginning to figure out how things work on tour and now he seems like a lock for a World Title in the next several years. Both have had their high and low points in 2013, and the Billabong Pro Tahiti means a lot to both surfers for a multitude of different reasons. So, as we said, it’s totally fine to have a burning urge to watch this one pan out. Because, quite frankly, a world where you can’t exclusively follow two fully grown men around for 21 days is a world that we want nothing to do with it."
