Billabong Junior Series fires on Day 1 in Jbay 2015

To be honest I was a little bleak we were on at the same time as the Jbay Open yesterday, but that feeling dissipated real fast as the Under 16 and Junior Boys heats took to the water at Magnatubes in Jbay and the level of surfing went through the roof! Top junior surfers like Matti Mcgilivray and Dylan Lightfoot battled with international super juniors like Seth Moniz and Griffin Colapinto. Matti landing a hail mary air in his quarter final to get a 10 point ride and Griffin getting the first perfect 10 of the event in his Round 1 heat. Check out the video and be impressed! Seriously I reckon you would have been more entertained at the Junior event than at the main event at Supertubes.

The Big Wave Boss – Twiggy wins the Surfer Poll Heavy Water Award

The current Big Wave World Champion has once again made South Africa proud by winning the coveted Surfer Poll Heavy Water Award for 2014. Always humble though, Twiggy paid homage to big wave charger, Shane Dorian and all those responsible for water safety in big wave surfing during his speech. In my opinion, he should have been the SA Sportsman of the year back home. Check out the video highlights and his speech below.
