THE main event is about to kick off with a sizeable swell forecast for the first day of the holding period, July 15th, 2010.
Here's a look back at the bay's greatest moments over the past quarter-century at the Billabong Pro J-Bay. What have your greatest J-Bay moments been? Occy vs Curren? Jordy's wildcard 3rd? Last year's perfect sand? Or the Irons vs Kelly show in 2005?
Perennial favourite, Joel Parko, last year's champ is unfortunately sidelined by injury leaving the field wide open for a new champ to be crowned at one of the world's showpiece waves. It could be anyone but Kelly, Taj, Mick and Jordy have to be favourites.
There event will be broadcast live HERE starting (swell permitting) tomorrow, July 15th.
