South Africa: Jeffrey's Bay to host the first "Jeffreys Bay Open Of Surfing" in July 2013

Good news for Jeffrey's Bay and the surfing community in South Africa. Billabong South Africa and the JBU Surf Club from Jeffrey's Bay have teamed up to organise the first "Jeffreys Bay Open Of Surfing". The surfing event will take place at Supertubes in Jeffrey's Bay from 09 - 13 July 2013 and will also anchor an extreme sports festival that will run in town and environs during a one week period. The "Jeffreys Bay Open Of Surfing" will be presented as a Specialty Surfing Event, with an entry field of 64 surfers. There will also be a limited entry girls division and possibly secondary divisions to run concurrently within the main surfing event

The tournament is sanctioned by Surfing South Africa, recognised by the South African Sports Confederation (SASCOC) as the governing body of the sport in South Africa.
The annual Billabong Pro surfing contest at Supertubes in Jeffrey's Bay, usually taking place in July, has recently been canceled for the first time in 25 years. [more]
