Good surfing and vibes at JBay Open

2019-06-20 06:00

The Men and Women surfers on the Championship Tour will be heading to South Africa and JBay for the Corona JBay Open, from 9 – 22 July.

Historically, this time of year is most consistent for good surf at Supertubes.

The tournament has massive significance for the surfers as the midway point on the tour, and it is where surfers engage in their final world title push, putting all the hard work in to the back half of the year. A good result in JBay can easily lead to a world title.

The other events in the JBay Winterfest include the Endurade JBay X Trail Run, the Bowls Tournament, the Fishing Skins competition, the Funduro Moto-X and the previously mentioned Vibe In The Park music sessions.

There is also going to be a comedy festival at The Bay Pasta Co. with Barry Hilton and Gino Fabbri among others. There will also be a signature evening, where the top surfers in the world will be signing posters for the public.

The Corona JBay Open is the anchor event for the JBay Winterfest, and takes place from 9 – 22 July.
