Jordy Smith Gains Ground by Surviving Jadson Andre

With John John Florence falling out of the Oi Rio Pro Saturday, the race for this year's World Title is taking an interesting turn. For Jordy Smith, who's sitting in a tie for No. 2 on the Jeep Leaderboard with Owen Wright, it's a rare opportunity to gain ground. But that job is far from easy. Smith had a tough draw in Round Three with former event champion Jadson Andre. The waves were far from perfect, and the fans were definitely in Jadson's corner, but Smith was able to dig deep and survive the challenge. And Round Three wins are crucial, because he now has two shots at making the Quarterfinals.
