FAVOURITE BILLABONG PRO J-BAY MOMENTS IN WEBISODE 6 ON BILLABONGPRO.COM
A selection of the most iconic moments of the past quarter-century at the Billabong Pro J-Bay are showcased in Webisode 7 on www.billabongpro.com, the official website of Africa’s premier surfing event.
Defending event champion Joel Parkinson, South African surfing super star Jordy Smith, ‘uber-wildcard’ Sean Holmes and a host of fresh-faced rising stars and grizzled local veterans share their favourite moments while the world’s best surfers perform on the revered 300 metre liquid runway known as Supertubes in Jeffreys Bay.
Relive the phenomenal waves of last year; the dramatic last-second, title-winning ride in 2005; Parko’s shark story; the elation of hearing the crowd react to a 10 point ride and a variety of other happenings that are indelibly etched into the folklore of one of the planet’s marquee annual surf gatherings.
