A back to core surf contest at Supers, a mountain bike event through the farms of the Kouga, a downhill skate event in the streets of Jeffreys Bay, an extreme swim in the sub 15 degree water of Marina Martinique (no wetsuits allowed), a trail run through the Kabeljous Nature Reserve, an urban rumble, the VW Rally and a fishing event off the beaches of Jeffreys Bay.
JBU Surf Club is proud to announce the Jeffreys Bay Winter Fest, an extreme sports festival set in Jeffreys Bay and environs, and anchored by the Jeffreys Bay Open Of Surfing. The JBay Winter Fest which runs from 6th July – 19 July promises to be an exciting time for the town of Jeffreys Bay.
“We’re just happy to be able to facilitate such an event for the town of Jeffreys Bay,” said JBU Surf Club Chairperson Arthur Joubert. “We’re also very proud to witness the local surf community of Jeffreys Bay embrace it in such a positive way in its inaugural year when it is basically a small and untested event, but we are determined to make it a great success. This year will be the first of many Winter Fests, and our festival will grow from strength to strength each year.”
The key tournament of the Winter Fest will be the Jeffreys Bay Open Of Surfing presented by Billabong, an invite-only Pro Surf Tour specialty surfing competition that will take place in the world class waves of Supertubes.
Proceeds from the entry fees will go to The Supertubes Surfing Foundation. SSF takes care of the Supertubes Park and the beaches of Jeffreys Bay and keeps them in pristine condition for all to enjoy.
