Surf Ninja – Rigard Smit

Whether it be tearing apart his home break at Caves or ripping abroad on another surf adventure, this Boland shredder leaves a trail of wave carnage wherever he goes. And while our featured wave assassin might not be certain which mission he’ll sign up for next, he sure knows how to smash a lip or thread a wedging tube.

Meet this week’s Surf Ninja, Rigard Smit.

BEST THING ABOUT SURFING?

All the politics.

Lowers

WHEN YOU’RE NOT SURFING, YOU CAN BE FOUND WHERE..?
Fishing or kicking it with my mates.

BIGGEST FEAR?
I’m kak scared of snakes and spiders.

BEST SURFING MEMORY?
There is just so many. A recent one was surfing Lowers for the first time – it was absolutely firing with only five people out. It was so good, it felt like a dream!
