Jeffreys Bay in South Africa has long been one of the most fabled stops in surfing. If J-Bay was a tennis court it would be a grand slam, if it was golf a course it would be a major. Whether you’re a fan of competition, or simply a surfing purist who is passionate about point break perfection, Jeffreys has all you could want and more, with a little bit of magic dust sprinkled over the top for good measure. In July 2022 J-Bay was on its best behaviour when the world’s elite surfers rolled into town, and the event and the free surfing that surrounded it were as good as it gets.
As the Indian Ocean came alive, and Ethan Ewing silently went about his business en route to a maiden Championship Tour victory and Tati Weston-Webb claimed a maiden female goofy victory for the women, our man Scotty Hammonds was on the sands of the Eastern Cape capturing the pick of the action.
From Jordy Smith putting on a masterclass in his home waters to Carissa Moore showing why she’s considered the the best lady to ever paddle into a wave at Supertubes, this edit has a little bit of everything. Stephanie Gilmore and Kelly Slater demonstrate what years of experience look like in picture postcard waves, while Kanoa Igarashi, Griffin Colapinto, Jack Robinson, Caroline Marks, Yago Dora and Italo Ferreira all put on virtuoso performances. Keep an eye out for young guns Molly Picklum and Crosby Colapinto too, as they show us once more why their days will come in the not-too-distant future.
At day’s end however there can only be one star and that’s the waves themselves. Take a bow, J-Bay, and we’ll see you again next year!
