TOP local surfers Dylan Lightfoot and Matt McGillivray are set to battle it out at the fast-paced JBU Supertrial in an attempt to secure a wildcard entry into the World Surf League Championship Tour event - the Corona Open JBay.

Only one surfer will advance to the Corona Open JBay that will take over Jeffreys Bay as part of the Winterfest from July 12 to 23.

The event, to take place at Supertubes, is an exclusive invite-only tournament and has a waiting period from June 1 to 11.

The JBU Supertrial is the only contest in the country that offers a stake into a championship tour competition.

The 2017 version of this event will feature an exciting new format. “This year will see a fast-paced and dynamic contest structure,” says contest organizer Koffie Jacobs. “This format will reward those surfers who surf hard and take chances from the get-go.”

The first surfers to compete in the JBU Supertrial are Dylan Lightfoot (Jeffreys Bay), Matt McGillivray (Jeffreys Bay), Mickey Fe-bruary (Kommetjie), and Beyrick de Vries uMhlanga).
