ASL At J-Bay: Day 5

Tuesday, 19 July 2011
There were just enough waves rolling in at Jeffreys Bay for contest organisers to call a late start to round 2, but only half the heats could be completed. In small right-handers, it should have been a difficult day for the goofies, but Ace Buchan was still able to post highest score of the day. Matt Kelson reports.
All the video highlights from day 5 of The Billabong Pro J-Bay, when half of Round 2 was completed in clean 2-3 foot waves.
Greatness never comes easy, it takes time, the time to learn, have fun and commit. Carissa Moore has clearly made the most of her time, becoming the youngest World Champion surfing has ever seen.JUST DO IT.

ASL At J-Bay: Round One Action

Saturday, 16 July 2011
In unusually warm winter weather for Jeffreys Bay, it wasn’t just the temperature that heated up and cooked: round one started off with a bang after some scintillating performances were displayed by some of the world’s best surfers. Matt Kelson reports...
Dan Ross is a tough nut, requalifiying for the World Tour by working hard, getting super-fit and winning the WQS series in 2009. But more recently, Rossy popped up on our radar when some shots of him destroying huge Bells Beach waves came by our desk. We knew we had to have a chat to Dan...
