Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Tue, 10 May 2016

Two surfers in two videos highlight cranking JBay at the past two JBU Supertrial presented by RVCA events held at Supertubes - the aim to single out a wildcard entry into the JBay Open.

The 2015 JBU Supertrial presented by RVCA was won by Durban surfer Slade Prestwich in solid 4-6ft surf at Supertubes. He defeated Mikey February in the final, relegating the young Cape Town surfer a second consecutive 2nd place. Putting on an excellent display in the perfect surf, Prestwich showed committed surfing in the final and was a worthy winner, going on to compete in the JBay Open Championship Tour event that year, where he was knocked out in Round 2 by Adriano de Souza.

In 2014 the JBU Supertrial presented by RVCA was won by local JBay surfer Dylan Lightfoot. He beat Mikey February in a close final in good Supers waves. Lightfoot went on to compete in the JBay Open Championship Tour event, coming up against Kelly Slater in round 1. He was relegated to the second round where he was defeated by Gabriel Medina in round 2.
