Supertubes

South Africa's premier wave and the main event at J-Bay. Perfect long-walled fast hollow waves with the possibility of a barrel the entire ride, but more often you will get your perfect barrel towards the end of the wave.

This super wave tends to slide along the point causing the whitewash to disappear, allowing you to focus your energy on the breaking waves rather than duck diving.

Be aware the wall keep coming faster than you would expect. Once you get that perfect tube, ride it high in the pocket and don't bail.

On good days the sets can break wide and waves can link up and give you a ride for about 1.5km, may be even longer. Supertubes in Jeffreys bay is definitely one of the best point-breaks in the world, thats why the Billabong Pro surf contest is held here each year in July.
