Wednesday, July 6, 2011 – The top 34 rated surfers in the world will descend upon Jeffreys Bay, South Africa in just over a week’s time to take part in one of the ASP World Tour’s most anticipated events, the annual Billabong Pro, J-Bay.
This, the first of six webisodes to be released in the lead-up, reflects on the location and the aspects that make J’Bay so special and features interviews with the likes of defending Billabong Pro, J’Bay champion Jordy Smith, former winners, Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Taj Burrow, current world rated number 1, Adriano de Souza and other world tour standouts.
Supertubes at Jeffrey’s Bay is perhaps the world’s premier right-hand point break, offering the right mix of speed and power, allowing the world’s best to showcase raw, unadulterated competitive surfing at its finest.
Stop 4 on the 2011 ASP Men’s World Tour has 10,000 valuable world ratings points and $425,000 in prize-money up for grabs. With several weeks since the last event, the Billabong Rio Pro, the best surfers in the world are understandably frothing to throw on the rashvest once again - and there’s no better place to do that than Supertubes, Jeffrey’s Bay.
