Jeffreys Bay
JBay Open set for 9 – 22 July 2019

World class surfing will take place at the worlds best wave as the Championship Tour returns to Jeffreys Bay from 9 – 22 July.

There is added excitement this year as the 2019 WSL Championship Tour will be the primary Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualification avenue for the world’s best surfers.

The world rankings at the end of the 2019 CT season will determine 18 of the 40 places at the Olympic Games (10 men and 8 women).

The remaining 22 places will be determined at the 2019 and 2020 ISA World Surfing Games, the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, and a single slot (each for men and women) for the host nation, Japan.

Of these 18 places determined by the WSL, there is a maximum of 2 men and 2 women for each country (e.g. if there are 3 women from Australia in the Top 8, only the Top 2 female Australians will qualify).

The 2019 Championship Tour starts in April and runs until December. This is a year-long, multi-stage tour that tests the world’s best surfers in a variety of different waves and conditions. The CT schedules are listed below:
