The annual JBay Winter Fest will take place from 6-17 July 2016 and it promises to be even bigger and better than last year.
Visitors from all over South Africa, as well as international tourists flock to Jeffreys Bay every winter to take part in some of the events on offer during the Winterfest, or to chill on the beach and watch the world’s best surfers battle it out at Supertubes during the JBay Open.
“The JBU Supertrial will take place prior to the JBay Open and we will give an opportunity to a South African surfer to win a wildcard into the main event,” said organiser Koffie Jacobs.
Most of the events from this year have been confirmed for the JBay Winterfest ’16 with trial running, mountain biking, skateboarding, cold water swimming, fishing, Oakley X-Over, junior surf event and a Funduro all part of the mix once again.
There will be plenty of live music to entertain visitors in the evening after a hard day’s surfing or competing in one of the numerous events on offer.
