The Worlds Best Surf - Jeffreys Bay


On the southern tip of Africa, Jeffreys Bay is ideally positioned to tame the swell from the storms in the great Southern Ocean to form perfect surfing waves (Infojeffreysbay.com). The wave size ranges from 2-3 ft up to 10 ft, and in July each year the top surfers in the world are competing here for the Billabong Pro.

"Known since the 1960’s as one of the best waves on the planet, not much has changed since surfers first discovered the point that creates rides of up to 800 m in length. The town has grown, the sand dunes have been flattened but each year the swell still arrives and is eagerly anticipated by local surfers who have dedicated their lives to riding the perfect wave. Surfers from all nations around the world who make the pilgrimage to the Mecca of surfing join them at one of the many surf breaks that give J’Bay the reputation it entirely deserves."
