Corona JBay Open

At this stage it is unclear as to whether John John Florence will be fit enough to surf in the Corona JBay Open. He injured himself while competing in the Oi Rio Pro recently, and pulled out of the event in the quarterfinals, giving Jordy Smith a walk through to the semis. If he is out it’ll simply mean that the rest of the CT surfers will have a slight chance to catch up to his massive lead. The Corona JBay Open is the anchor event for the JBay Winterfest, and takes place from 9 – 22 July.
