The Corona Open J-Bay, stop No. 6 on the 2017 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), ran through the opening two heats of elimination Round 2 before competition was put on hold and eventually called off after the inconsistent one metre waves and crosswind conditions at Jeffreys Bay failed to improve.

The world’s best surfers and picture perfect two metre waves at Supertubes combined to produce a spectacular display of high-performance surfing on the opening day of the Corona Open J-Bay in Jeffreys Bay today.

Competition has been called off for today at the Corona Open J-Bay, Stop No. 6 of 11 on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), due to adverse winds at Supertubes in Jeffreys Bay.

Supertubes, JBay – The World Surf League (WSL) Commissioner’s Office at the Corona Open JBay have put the contest on hold again today (Friday) as they wait expectantly for what promises to be epic conditions approaching. The surf at Supertubes is contestable today, but the northwest devil wind is making it bumpy and unpleasant.

With small 0.6 to 0.9 metre waves on offer, onshore winds predicted for later in the day and better surf forecast for later this week, WSL Commissioner Kieren Perrow has called off competition for today.
