The event catered for boys and girls surfing in seven age divisions ranging from U12, U14, U16 to U18 and was part of the 2016 J-Bay Winterfest which runs until the July 17th. The J Bay Winterfest features a number of sporting and cultural events in Jeffrey’s Bay with the J-Bay Open of Surfing as its main attraction.
Quiksilver’s sales and marketing manager Dane Patterson was very happy with the event’s outcome. ”We really enjoyed being able to put this event on during Winterfest this year. It is the best time to be in J-Bay. The juniors were stoked to be surfing good waves here and also being able to watch the world’s best out at Supertubes for the J-Bay Open.” Read More…
