J-Bay Open (Multi Sports)
Latest News & Results
Jeffreys Bay, home to the planet’s best right-hand point break, Supertubes, host to South Africa’s most prestigious surfing events and wet-dream to every surfer worth their weight in salt. JBay is globally renowned for its world class waves and prominence in the international surfing community.
In 2013 the town of Jefferys Bay launched the inaugural JBay Winter Fest, an extreme sports festival with a basic principal for all athletes and disciplines – Back to Core.
Back to Core champions the primary motivation in each one of us, the impulse that made us first paddled out into surf, why we kept paddling. It’s that initial spark, that infectious enthusiasm that makes us love adventure sport with immaculate joy. Back to Core embodies the belief that our inclination to chase our passion runs deep, and in a bustling world, there’s still space to celebrate the things that bring us fundamental exhilaration.
This year sees the festival return with more events, more athletes and the return of the Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) Event.
For ten days over winter, the JBay Winter Fest highlights the culture of Jeffreys Bay with a rush of extreme sports, endurance events and some of South Africa’s biggest bands. From 10-20 July 2014 J-Bay will be sensational.
Supertubes Surfing Foundation Page
The Supertubes Surfing Foundation is a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), Section 21 Company that has preserved the waves and beaches and propagated and rescued the indigenous flora of Jeffreys Bay since 1999. It is a joint venture between the surf clubs and the surfing industry in the town.
The Supertubes Surfing Foundation and Enviroman will manage the JBay Winter Festival, green initiatives and waste recycling management at all the events.

The winner of the #JBayWinterFest Photo Competition presented by Arbor and Core Surf Skate Shop is @dtlphotography with this classic J-Bay Winter’s dawn shot with a couple of surfers who have made the pilgrimage to come and watch their heroes compete and sneak a dawn patrol with them, when they can - you will never play tennis with Roger Federer, but you can share waves with Slater, Medina and co. Technically, the judges like the strength of the silhouette (i.e. how dark the shadows are) - in this day and age of HDR, too many people would’ve filled in those shadows. @dtlphotography wins R7500 cash.

Desmond and the Tutu’s put on a tremendous show last night. Lead singer Shane Durrant had the crowd immensely intrigued by his quirky dance moves. He got the whole crowd involved, and next minute everyone was grooving his same humorously strange indie groove. The band provided the perfect musical canvas for Shane to paint his 70’s dance moves. And paint he did. #JBayWinterFest

If you were an average joey working class hero of a surfer, the waves would have been fairly difficult. But the WSL surfers paddled out and made light work of the testing conditions. The Brazilians, in particular, took to Supers like it was a beach break in Rio de Janeiro throwing caution to the wind with blow tails and air reverses. Ace Buchan, however stuck to the wave face and used his backhand whip to dispatch of Julian and Kai Otton. All the Brazilians, Alejo, Adriano and Gabriel, and Australian goofy footer Adrian Buchan got a straight birth into the quarter finals. Join us tomorrow for round 5 action at the Jbay Open. #JBayWinterFest | #JBayOpen

The third edition of the Core Sokkie Jol presented by Sector 9 went down in torrential conditions at the Die Vrieskas Blue Water Estate. After a day of epic action, Tyron Coetzee was not only the fastest, but the best man on the course. “It was very interesting coming up here yesterday to help out with the setup,” commented a stoked Tyron afterward. “It was dry and I was amped, but today was pouring with rain, so it was wet and slippery,” he said. “There were a lot of guys sliding out. It was really intense, so you really had to think about what you’re doing.” All in all the Core Downhill Sokkie Joll presented by Sector 9 was a fantastict success. All the groms got fully involved, slipping, sliding and fizzing their way through the course. The rain had absolutely no chance of stopping the proceedings and the kids got old school with a couple of slides. Tighten your trucks for next year, cause you know it's going to be another doozy. #JBayWinterFest | #SokkieJol | #wemakefun

Mudfest of a Funduro. Now in its third year, Slake Adventures once again hosted the JBay Winterfest Funduro. Torrential downpours the night before had mad the course muddy and slippery. Ideal for enduro motorbike riding then. Much of the 15-kilometre route featured tight bush singletrack tunnels and both flat and technical sections which offered something for all levels of riders. In addition there was the ‘Slake Pit’ obstacle course provided a lot of entertainment for spectators as many of the obstacles were rendered super challenging by the wet conditions. The Funduro is a family day out and aimed at bringing all levels of riders together so it is not timed and there is no racing element. #JBayWinterFest | #Funduro | © Kody McGregor
