Wilko, Jordy, Seabass And Conner Coffin Go Retro At J-Bay

Yesterday was an exceptional opening day of competition at Jeffreys Bay. The waves were firing. High scores were plentiful. Joel Turpel made a return to the broadcasting booth and Italo Ferreira did a Salt Bae claim. You really couldn’t ask for more. And while a majority of the big names retreated to the heated comfort of their beachside Airbnb’s after the final horn of the day, Matt Wilkinson, Jordy Smith, Sebastian Zietz, and Conner Coffin had a different idea. Participating in the Corona Highline event, Wilko, Seabass, Jordy and Conner grabbed locally shaped twins and paddled back out to Supertubes. Searching more for soul arches and kink-knee bottom turns rather than tubes (although there were still several to be had) and snaps. As the sun set behind the Eastern Cape, it was Jordy Smith who walked away with the first place finish for the best Heath Joske impersonation. Enjoy clicking through the photos above highlighting the event’s proceedings.
