Did you know that JBay is one of the most famous surfing destinations in the world? Yes, really! It’s even number 2 on CNN’s list of the World’s 50 best surf spots. So, how does this relatively remote stretch of beach in the Eastern Cape of South Africa get such cred? It’s all thanks to a little something knows as Supertubes and long, fast barrels. As the article says, expert surfers flock to JBay for rides up to 300 metres long. What a trip?!
Every year, the Billabong Pro is held in JBay and attracts hundreds of local and international surfers to this quaint coatal town.
