Jordy wins Cascais Trophy -- and some serious cash!

When it comes to surfing, Jordy Smith has it under control.

The SA-born surfer was recently abroad to compete in the Moche Rip Curl Pro in Portugal.

And even though the winning title was scooped from Jordy by Mick Fanning, he still managed to walk away with the Cascais Trophy and $50 000 (R548 000) in prize money on October 20.

This meant that Jordy was positioned at the top of the Portuguese Waves Series.

"Congrats Mick Fanning stoked for you buddy... Lucky I never caught another wave, best of luck for the title race...#MocheRipCurlPro," he wrote on Facebook. Here's hoping he bring home the trophy after he competes in the championship in Hawaii!
