Jeffrey's Bay


J Bay is one of the top ten most perfect waves on the planet. You’ve dreamed about J Bay, seen a zillion photos and videos, mind-surfed it for years. Aren’t you curious to see how you go for real? Surfing J Bay is like getting behind the wheel of a vintage Jag or Ferrari: raw beautiful speed, drift through the turns, accelerate in the straights, go man go. Express yourself.

The many points of Jeffrey’s Bay are the main attraction to this part of the world, but not the only attraction. An hour’s drive either way from J Bay are dozens of surf spots: reefs, beach breaks and other points. Surfer Magazine recently included Jeffrey’s Bay in its list of Meccas – surf trips that all surfers must make.
