The JBay Winterfest will be screening Exploring Madagascar – a film about Grant Baker, Slade Pretswich and Frank Soloman travelling Madagascar looking for undiscovered waves.
The screening will take place on the beach at Point this evening (Wednesday).
The sunset Jam Sessions starts at 5 pm at Point- to the left of the JBay Open JBay Open contest site if you looking at the ocean.
There will be a big screen on the beach and a band jamming afterwards, with great weather being predicted for the beach party.
Exploring Madagascar is a movie about some of South Africa’ s best surfers exploring uncharted Madagascar, which is just a short hop from SA,
The waves down south are well known but the north of Madagascar is wild – p
athless jungles, crocodile infested rivers and uncharted reefs.
“This was the difference between a swell chase and pure discovery,” explains Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker.
“This is as real as it gets… In the 21st century most people are doing swell chases and there is very limited pure discovery missions still on the go.
I have also been guilty of that the past 10 years – it’s a lot easier to chase a swell. But I’m changing my tactics,” Twiggy says.
