Jeffreys Bay

The home of the best right-hand point break, Supertubes and host to South Africa’s most prestigious surfing events. J-Bay is renowned for its world class waves and also hosts the annual Winter Fest. This is an extreme sports festival with something for everyone! The J-Bay Winter Fest blows your mind by highlighting the culture of Jeffreys Bay which features:

  • Extreme sports
  • Endurance events
  • South Africa’s biggest bands

SLNKO does J-Bay

The SLNKO team could not resist taking a trip to check these attractions out.  One thing you need to understand is that Winter in J-Bay is unlike any normal Winter.  The weather is beautiful and the beaches are packed. Remember, you still need to protect your skin with SLNKO zinc! There is no better way to enjoy the outdoors for longer, than with SLNKO zinc.

 Surfing Contest

This was our main attraction which meant that we got to spend some time with our SLNKO Ambassador, Etienne Buys.  Etienne is on the ASP World Surfing Tour International judging panel. He carries his SLNKO zinc everywhere he goes!  In his line of work, he follows the sun and the surf. It’s always summer for his skin and SLNKO zinc is a permanent fixture on Etienne’s face!

Another SLNKO Ambassador spotted at Winter Fest was young Ethan Lindeque. He is a Junior Inflatable Boat Racing team rider and avid surfer.  He was seen in the local supermarket alongside multiple World Champion Surfer and legend of the waves, Kelly Slater.

Unfortunately our SLNKO team had to head back to Cape Town. The sun is still shining in J-Bay so get your SLNKO zinc on and head out. Go watch the epic finals of the surfing contest this weekend and play outside for longer with SLNKO zinc.
