THE Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay has commenced this morning at 7:30am in clean three-to-five (1.5 metre) surf at South Africa’s iconic pointbreak. Watch it HERE.

Stop No. 5 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour, the Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay has seen the ASP Top 45 survive through four consecutive lay days, but today’s improved conditions will have the world’s best surfers in the water.

“We’ve got the beginning of what could turn into a really good day of waves out there this morning” Mike Parsons, Billabong Pro Contest Director, said. “Recent swell projections have prompted us to activate the new competition format so we can make the most of the conditions on offer, but we will not be running the dual-heat system today.”

The new ASP competition format will see man-on-man, elimination heats from the outset of competition this morning, resulting in a day of dramatic match-ups.

First up this morning with be 2009 ASP Dream Tour rookie Tim Boal (FRA), 26, up against compatriot Michael Picon (FRA), 30.

MSW forecast

Open ocean swell is forecast to improve in size tomorrow (Tuesday) with a southerly 14 second period swell coming in at around 180 degrees underlying the slightly larger and dominant south-south-west 222 degree swell. It’s the former which will be creating the surfable waves. Contestable conditions and favourable winds will continue through on Wednesday and Thursday on a fading swell. Check out the forecast HERE.
