The Inertia

You know those times when you’re on a surf trip and your flight home is just around the bend? It’s pretty much a guarantee that a swell will arrive the day you’re supposed to leave. If you’re lucky, you can push that pesky flight back a few days and pack in a few more waves. If you’re not, you have to go home and face real life. Well, for Kelly Slater and Jordy Smith, real life dictates that they must stay. Which is why they hung around J-Bay after the event on the off-chance that it would pick up again. And pick up again it did.
