Every wave sliding aficionado should go to Jeffrey's Bay at least once in their life. Known for leg-burning rides and apex wildlife, it remains one of the Southern Hemisphere's great surfing sanctuaries. And only a stone's throw away is the World Surfaris Supertubes guesthouse, where our lucky winner of the golden passport and their friend will be treated to the trip of a lifetime! It's easy to enter, but first, let's catch up with Richard Edy at World Surfaris to set the scene, as we break down the 5 absolute musts about Jeffrey's Bay... 

You win the #goldenpassport and touch down at J-Bay. What’s the first thing you do that day?
You get to the Supertubes carpark as soon as humanly possible to take in the view and hopefully it's firing!

Describe the vibe at J-Bay in one sentence…
The J-Bay vibe is super chilled, friendly and inviting.

What leaves people speechless on first impression?
Watching the sunrise on a perfect 6ft day, will leave most people speechless.

What are the 5 ‘absolute musts' that every guest should experience at your destination?

1. A visit to Seal Point

2. A visit to Bruces Beauty

3. Eat fresh calamari

4. Take a walk from the top of the point all the way to the end

5. Visit the Cheetah sanctuary 'African Dawn'

Name J-Bay's best kept secret?
The friendly people.

What continues to surprise you about this destination?
How absolutely perfect it can get and the high levels of excitement that spill over every time you arrive!

What quiver would you recommend for the waves in this region?
Being perfect it's one of the few waves where a variety of craft can be used. It's the perfect playground so anything goes from a twin fish to a quality step up for the 8-10ft heaving days!

Talk us through a perfect day of surfing here... 
Coffee, surf, breakfast, watch the waves rundown the point, surf, eat lunch, watch the waves roll down the point, surf, if you got enough gas in the tank, another surf, or nothing better than watching the late arvo session with a cold beer on the boardwalk, sleep... then repeat!
