RE: Crowds and Localism at J-Bay« Reply #1 on: May 26 2004 15:05:00 »
I surf there regurlarly and the crowds are pretty laid back. Except just before or after a big Contest. I would avoid it especially between 12 Dec and 05 Jan.
Early morning is normally the best time of the day.

I had no problems with crowds or locals - get out at dawn you will find more dolphins than surfers.

hey kim,wont know where u from,but im from j~bay,although sadly stuck in a small town south of london.NO localism isnt as bad as they make it to be,you always get a few locals who thinks they own spots,but not even the other locals put up with that,we have our old scool boys who might seem aggro,but theyre not once you get to know them,somebody has to make sure the vaalies doesnt take over.keep on surfing and take one 4the guys that cant get to the ocean,cheers

I'm a Local Stuck in London at the moment, But have to say that if you respect the locals and especially the JBU on their home turf, you'll be fine. DO NOT drop in on anybody that even slightly looks like a local, and if you do, appologise and have some respect!!!

coming from Cape town and surfing j-bay regularly ( now in OZ ),i find the crowd quite mellow at Jeffreys.Just the same as at most well known spots.Just give respect to get it back.Know the rules and just enjoy it,life is about that!
