Surfing in Jeffreys Bay

Jeffreys Bay is known worldwide for its spectacular surfing spots.

It is said to be the premier surfing location in South Africa and second in the world. A place where all surfers can let their hair down, surf the perfect wave and be at one with the ocean. Three of the main spots to surf are: Supers where the waves reach 10-12 feet. This surf spot is the most popular among the more experienced local and international surfers.

The swell will keep you for years to come, running well into the winter months. Boneyards lies adjacent to Supers. Here the waves all break almost perfectly. It can link all the way to the Point for a distance of one kilometer long. Boneyards is the more favorable wave therefore the locals are territorial over it.

Here the waves all break almost perfectly.

The Point is located further down the beachfront towards Kabeljous. The waves here are smaller but offer you a longer ride. Here surfers warm up for the surf competitions held at Supers. Annually you can feast your eyes on the Billabong Surfing Competition held every July, where surfers from all over the world make their way to Jeffreys Bay.

International surfers will flock to catch that legendary wave at the Billabong Surfing Competition. Come along and ride the infamous Supertubes.

The Industry Cup that was last held in 2003 has been brought back that is hosted by Bloodscan and surfers now look forward to this annual event bringing all local surfers together.
