“Skuif die fees na Maart/April wanneer die wind nie so erg waai nie en gooi die stalletjies met die nagemaakte sonbrille, horlosies, ens uit – dit hoort nie by die Skulpiefees nie” Karin

“Ons almal sukkel om te oorleef in J bay en dit is al wat die Munispaliteit kan aanbied? Nee wat vat liewers die Skulpie Fees weg as om J’Bay se naam so deur die modder te sleep” Dawie

“The Shell Festival is a joke” Casper

“Ja nee kyk dis nou embarrassing! Was altyd great..ma is nou net simpel en boring. Waar kan mense betrokke raak of is dit onmoontlik? Celeste

Long time local Geoffrey Bennet still supports the Shell Festival

“I visited the festival on Saturday. It was my first time as I moved here in Dec’09. Some of my new J’Bay friends told me it would be a waste of time but I enjoyed it so much.
The vibe was great and everybody seemed to be having a jolly good time. Lots of people on the street and it gave the town a true holiday feel. Well done” Jacques

“The Shell Festival is getting more disappointing every year. I say it is just BAD management. We are losing attendance to Loerie’s Naartjie Fees each year and no one seems to care about it. We need the Shell Festival each year to bring in money for Jeffreys Bay! What can we do about it???” Sonja

“The Shell Festival still manages to bring feet into town but then there is not much for people to do once they here. Will they come back next year?” Breyten
