JEFFREYS BAY, South Africa (Sunday, July 8, 2018) – The Corona Open J-Bay, Stop No. 6 on World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), will see a second-consecutive lay day with inconsistent and small surf on offer at Supertubes.

“We’ve been watching the surf for a little bit, but it is still pretty small,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Deputy Commissioner. “We are going to be off for the day. We are going to have another look at the forecast and see what we are dealing with for the next couple of days. That Friday does look really really good, so fingers crossed for that.”

The WSL Commissioner’s Office will reconvene tomorrow morning to reassess the conditions and make the next call.

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:

Small surf prevails Sunday morning and for a good chunk of the day. A heavily shadowed WSW swell will build Sunday later afternoon before easing Monday, setting up inconsistent surf as side to onshore wind also prevails.  A fun size SW swell looks possible for Tuesday late afternoon into Wednesday, although unfavorable wind looks likely. Confidence continues to  increase that we’ll see a medium size swell with favorable wind Thursday afternoon and Friday and this looks likely to produce the best swell in the remaining event window.

Heat 1: Johanne Defay (FRA), Carissa Moore (HAW), Bianca Buitendag (ZAF)
Heat 2: Lakey Peterson (USA), Malia Manuel (HAW), Coco Ho (HAW)
