Post Show Report: Can We Talk About Perfection?

Regardless of what happens from here, Tuesday's action at the Corona Open J-Bay has already secured this year as an instant classic, with epic conditions being matched by an almost obscene amount of inspired surfing. Fans had plenty to cheer about with Jordy Smith leading the way in Round Three with a perfect 20-point heat. His pair of 10-point rides weren't the only ones though, as John John Florence and Julian Wilson got involved in that story. And there were plenty more, as well. Ronnie Blakey, Peter Mel and Shaun Tomson break down a milestone day from J-Bay.
