The Jeffrey’s Bay That Hasn’t Been On The Webcast…

13 juillet 2017

In the days leading up to the first day of the waiting period for the Jeffrey’s Bay Open – the very first days the World Tour rolled into town – something happened.


Jeffrey’s Bay, in all it’s stunning, walled glory, came to life. So without rashies, without heat scores, without buzzers and timers, some of the world’s best surfers got to paddle out and have their way with the best right-hander in the world.

Mick Fanning, Gabriel Medina, Matt Wilkinson, Owen Wright, Conner Coffin, Tyler Wright… the whole team was there, and they sure made the most of it.

  • Welcome to Jeffrey’s Bay! The comp might not be on, but morale levels are higher than ever.
  • The long right-hand wall of JBay is familiar territory for Conner Coffin – not from experience in South Africa, but rather from the lineup he calls home. Rincon.
  • The Jeep Leaderboard Yellow Jersey Leader, happy to be back at one of his strongest stops on Tour. Watch out, World Title. Wilko’s coming for ya.
  • This was Tyler Wright’s first trip to Jeffery’s Bay, and she was blown away. It’s easy to see why.
  • Owen Wright tucking into a smaller tunnel on a sunny afternoon in South Africa. For Ow, it’s never felt better to be back.
  • No matter where in the world he is, Gabby always finds a way to suss out a section that no one else seems to want. And then, well… then this happens.
  • One can only imagine what Seabass is yelling at Mick, during a session like this.
  • One of the most magical things about Jeffrey’s Bay is the style is allows… it’s a potent and beautiful combination of speed, power and an absolutely necessary flow that no other wave offers up. Here’s Conner… mastering the technique.
  • Gabby doesn’t have the same relationship with this wave as his teammates, Wilko and Mick. It’s less… dramatic. When he jumps off the rocky point and starts paddling out it’s about one thing and one thing only – fun. Having fun on one of the world’s best waves, a wave that runs for what feels like forever. And that shows through in his surfing.
  • Owen might have been worried about waves with size and force on them at the start of this year… but right now? He’s anything but.
  • Classic Fanning. Classic Jeffrey’s. Just goddamn classic.
  • Who’s silhouette is this? We’ll give you one guess…
  • Owen Wright floating his way into one helluva dreamy JBay sunset.
  • The exact second that this photo was taken, you can bet a million dollars that there’s nowhere else in the world Mick Fanning would rather be.
  • Now all that’s left to do is wait. Jacob Willcox doesn’t mind, we guarantee you that.
