JEFFREYS BAY, South Africa (Thursday, July 5, 2018) – Finals Day of the Men’s Corona Open J-Bay Stop No. 6 on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), is ON starting at 10:05 a.m. local time (SAST) in four-to-six foot (1.2 – 1.8 metre) waves at Supertubes. The men’s Quarterfinals will start with 35-minute heats to determine the event winner.
“We are really happy with the conditions this morning,” said Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner. “We are on with the Quarterfinals, straight into Semifinals and Finals today. We’ve got beautiful waves still rolling in. It is a little bit smaller but looks really rippable so expect some great surfing and a great Finals Day.”
The Corona Open J-Bay will be broadcast LIVE on the WSL’s Facebook page. Also, check local listings for coverage from the WSL’s broadcast partners.
Surfline, forecast partner of the WSL, is calling for:
Rippable SSW swell prevails Thursday morning, with a building trend of medium to strong surf over the later afternoon and evening. Friday early morning should still see good size surf, with a fading trend through the day. Wind looks favorable most of the day Thursday before trending light+ onshore on Friday. A modest size, heavily shadowed WSW/SW swell should build in Sunday afternoon before easing Monday, although wind will likely be side shore or onshore. There is some potential for a new swell around the end of the event window.
