The competition will get underway today at the J-Bay Open, stop No. 6 on the 2015 Samsung Galaxy World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT).
The world’s best surfers will run through Round 1 in four-to-six foot surf at Jeffreys Bay.
“The swell has definitely improved this morning,” Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner said.
“There’s some decent sets in the head-high range and the wind is holding off, which is nice. We are starting at 7:40 a.m. with the aim of finishing Round 1 and we’re looking at some really nice waves”.
First to compete will be Taj Burrow (AUS), Michel Bourez (PYF) and Brett Simpson (USA) in the opening heat of Round 1.
