The J-Bay Open, Stop No. 6 on the 2015 Samsung Galaxy World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), has been called off following a dramatic incident that involved three-time WSL Champion and defending event winner Mick Fanning (AUS) being attacked by a shark in the opening minutes of the Final against Julian Wilson (AUS).
The scene unfolded live on WorldSurfLeague.com as the Australian essentially fought off the two animals before the Water Safety Team quickly arrived and pulled both Fanning and compatriot Julian Wilson into the safety boat. Despite a severed leash, Fanning remained physically unscathed by the incident.
"We are incredibly grateful that no one was seriously injured today," Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner, said. "Mick's composure and quick acting in the face of a terrifying situation was nothing short of heroic and the rapid response of our Water Safety personnel was commendable - they are truly world class at what they do. The safety of our athletes is a priority for the WSL and, after discussions with both Finalists, we have decided to cancel the remainder of competition at the J-Bay Open. We appreciate the ongoing support we have in South Africa and once again want to express our gratitude to the Water Safety Team."
“I was just sitting there and I felt something grab or get stuck in my leg rope and I instantly just jumped away,” Fanning said. “It just kept coming at my board and I was kicking and screaming. I just saw fins, I didn’t see any teeth. I was waiting for the teeth to come at me as I was swimming. I punched it in the back. I’m totally fine, I’ve got nothing wrong with me. There’s a small depression in my board and my leg rope got bitten and I’m totally tripping out.”
“I was just cruising and waiting for my turn, my opportunity and I knew Julian (Wilson) was down the point,” continued Fanning. “I was just about to get moving and start paddling again and all of a sudden I had this instinct that something was behind me. I started getting pulled underwater and then the thing came up and I was on my board and it was right there. I saw the whole thing thrashing around but I was getting dragged under by my leg rope. I felt like it kicked me off but it was still there going and I was still attached to my board. I felt like I punched it a couple of times and then it was dragging me and then my leg rope broke."
"I started swimming and screaming and yelling at Jules (Julian Wilson) to move as well, but he was coming at me," said Fanning. "What a legend, coming after me. I was swimming in and I turned around and I had this thought, what happens if it comes to have another go at me, so I turned around so I could at least see it coming. Before I knew it the boat was there, the jet skis were there and we were in safely. I just can’t believe it. To walk away from that, I’m just so stoked. I want to let all my family and friends know that I’m okay.”
“Mick (Fanning) was kind of out in no man’s land so I was really watching him and had my eyes on him,” said Wilson. “Mick (Fanning) was looking down the point and I saw the whole thing pop up behind him. It can up and he was wrestling it. I saw him get knocked off his board and then a wave popped up and I thought, ‘he’s gone’. I felt like I couldn’t get there quick enough. The results don’t mean anything to me, I’m just happy he’s alive. I literally thought when I was paddling for him that I wasn’t going to get there in time, especially when I saw him off his board and swimming away. I thought it was going to grab him and take him under. I’m so happy we’re both on the beach right now, I was so worried about Mick’s life.”
Both Fanning and Wilson will receive equal second place and 8,000 points on the Jeep Leaderboard. They will split the prize money between them equally, receiving $70,000 each. The result sees Fanning move up two places to second on rankings, Wilson move up to third and Adriano de Souza (BRA) retain the Jeep leader jersey.
Before the incident occurred the pair were set for an exciting 40-minute all-Australian Final with Wilson searching for his first CT win and Fanning looking to defend his J-Bay Open title and claim his 21st CT victory. The pair has had four previous head-to-head heats with Fanning claiming the win each time.
Earlier in the day the form goofyfooter of the event, Adrian Buchan (AUS), faced Wilson in an all-Australian clash in the opening Semifinal. Buchan won through each Round of competition before losing out to Wilson in the Semifinals, who won through thanks to his heat-high opening score, sending Buchan home in third place. Previously 30th on the Jeep Leaderboard and in need of a good result after a series of early exits this year the result today sees Buchan jump up ten places to 20th on the Jeep Leaderboard and marks his first Semifinal appearance since the 2014 Billabong Pipe Masters.
“At the moment it doesn’t feel great” said Buchan. “I had an opportunity at the end and didn’t really finish, but like you said I feel really proud that I’ve got my year back on track and I felt like I was doing the surfing here to go all the way. It was great to have a good battle out there with Julian (Wilson) in pumping J-Bay. I feel confident at all the locations coming up, I’ve had big results everywhere and I know I can perform at all the spots left. I’m just going to go there and just surf and rely on my instincts and have fun. That’s what I did here and it really worked.”
The second Semifinal saw Kelly Slater (AUS) and Fanning, the two most successful surfers at Jeffreys Bay and long time rivals, battle for a place in the Final. The pair have had 15 previous man-on-man heats in CT history, with Slater taking 9 wins to Fanning’s 6 and their last match-up was the Final in Fiji in 2013. Two 8-point rides from Fanning with less than ten minutes gone left the 11-time World Champion in a combination situation. Slater managed to escape with an excellent 9.43 for a long floater, quick barrel and series of carving turns but was left searching for a 7.30. Fanning sealed the deal with a 9.63 in the final minutes and sailed through to the Final. The Semifinal berth for Slater marks his best result of the season sees him move up to 6th place on the rankings.
“Now I’ve seen it all,” said Slater of the attack. “I was coming up the beach and I saw all the boats and skis go straight to the lineup. I knew there was only one possible reason that would ever happen in a contest and that’s if someone got attacked by a shark. I ran up the beach trying to get some information. I’m halfway between crying and laughing because he (Fanning) got so lucky. I’m lost for words to be honest. We almost just watched our friend get eaten by a shark and I’m just blown away that there’s no damage at all.”
World no. 1 Adriano de Souza (BRA) was sent home after the Quarterfinals by Wilson. With only seven waves surfed during the 35-minute clash it was the Australian that held the edge and took the win. De Souza wasn’t able to find the waves or the scores he needed but retains his place at the top of the rankings heading into the next event in Tahiti.
“Julian (Wilson) is such a good surfer,” De Souza said. “I think I lost that heat for myself, I lost my rhythm on my last wave and that cost me. I’m definitely in the hunt for a good result in Tahiti right now. I started my training early and I’m trying to get strong. I just need to do well and get to the Quarters or Semis at every single contest. That’s my goal. At this stage everyone has a chance and I’m focused on my training and my equipment.”
Reigning WSL Champion Gabriel Medina (BRA) was also eliminated in the Quarterfinals at the hands of Semifinalist Slater. Despite a strong showing from the Brazilian and an impressive 17.23 heat total two nine-point rides from the 11-time World Champion were too much for Medina to overcome. A 5th place finish sees Medina move to 15th place on the Jeep Leaderboard heading into Stop No. 7, the Billabong Pro Tahiti.
“We both got some sick waves,” said Medina. “It’s hard to beat Kelly (Slater) out here, especially when the waves are like this. He’s the guy out here and I knew that was going to be tough. There isn’t much I can do, but I had fun out there and I’m happy with the end result. I’m excited for Tahiti. Last year I had a great result over there. Now I’m going back home to get prepared.”

The Billabong Junior Series Presented By BOS Event 1 finished off in excellent style at Magnatubes today. Light offshore conditions and small but fun and contestable waves poured through the whole day, allowing the junior surfers ample opportunty to show their form. The surf improved during the day, as the tide pushed and the lines rolled in. There were some tricky sections at Magna's and wave selection was crucial, but a few surfers stood out.
In the U12 Boys division it was Nathan Spalding from Gillits who emerged victorious in a tight final from Christian Venter from Melkbos.
Kai Woolf (JBay) turned on the pressure in the U14 Girls division, while Angelo Faulkner was the man of the moment in the U14 Boys division.
In the U16 Girls division Kai Woolf once again came out on top, winning her two divisions, and Sebastian Williams (JBay) edged out For Van Jaarsveldt from Kommetjie in the U16 Boys.
"Winning both divisions is really important to me because of all the hard work I've put in," said Woolf."I caught a lot of waves in the U14 final. but I think I learned from that, and surfing against the older girls I had to focus on getting the best waves only."
The premier U20 division saw the girls fighting it out in the zippy little Magnatubes right-handers. On the final siren it was Nicole Pallet (KZN) who edged out Olivia Brand (KZN) for the win.
In the Boys U20, it was Eithan Osborne from USA who claimed victory from local surfer Dylan Lightfoot in an exciting final heat. Needing a mid-range seven score, Dylan launched into a do-or-die air in the dying seconds, but it was not enough for victory. Eithan, hailing from Ventura, Caliornia, had no problem adjusting to the waves of Magnatubes en route to his victory. "The waves that I surf at home are similar - right points and some beach breaks - so it hasn't been too difficult to adjust to this."

The competitors in the Billabong Junior Series presented by BOS were once again greeted to sublime 3-foot waves peeling down the Magnatubes reef.
The Billabong Junior Series presented by BOS is a two-event junior series, with the second and final event, taking place at Seal Point from 25 – 27 September. This year there are 7 divisions, incorporating PST as well as WSL – rated divisions.
The Billabong Junior Series presented by BOS is the longest- running junior series in the world, and the richest junior series in the country.
Magnatubes is the new contest venue, and is a great right-hand point-break, perfectly suited to the dynamic young junior surfers competing in this contest.
Kai Woolf is surfing two divisions (U14 and U16) and the nugget little goofyfooter has dominated every heat she’s surfed in.
“Surfing two divisions definitely takes its strain so you have to make sure you eat the right food. But the waves are so fun so it’s cool to get the opportunity to surf more heats with so few girls out,” she said.
Kai is originally from Jeffreys Bay but is currently living in New Zealand. “Coming home is amazing and this has always been home to me, but surfing in New Zealand has been so beneficial to my surfing. The waves where I live are so fast, so it’s speeded up my surfing.”

Perfect lines greeted the junior surfers at Magnatubes for day 2 of the Billabong Junior Series presented by BOS event. With the slightly smaller surf on tap, the contest organisers decided to run with the U14 Girls round 1. Early standouts in this competitive division were Kai Woolf, Tayla De Coning and Gabi Lailvaux with Kai using her local knowledge to make the most of the conditions on her backhand.
This was followed by the U16 girls round 1 and standouts here included Zoe Smith, Kelly Medley and Kayla Noguiera.
In the improving conditions on the high tide, the U20 Women were sent out for their round 1 heat, and Gina Smith, Nicole Pallet, Olivia Brand and Crystal Hulett were impressive.
Gina Smith, on her backhand, was a standout as the wind backed off with the low tide. She won the opening U20 heat in fine style scoring an 8.0 right off the bat.
“It was definitely very rippable,” she commented afterward. “There were a few fast ones that would leave you behind, but some really nice runners you just had to be smart with wave selection.” She believes local knowledge definitely played a part in that first wave. “I know that second peak often works and I had been watching, so I was happy to get that one,” she said, adding however that on days with tricky conditions like today, it’s a pretty level playing field. “On low tide it is so shifty that it is anyone’s game,” she said.
Crystal Hulett from St Francis also surfed a clever heat to edge out Teal Hogg. “It’s dropped a lot since yesterday,” she said, “but they’re definitely easier to drop in on and there is more of a ride on offer.” Hulett explained how she and Teal Hogg paddled each other quite far up the point to gain the inside position. “I kind of redirected myself back down the point and that helped me get the scores I needed.”
In the Boys U14 round 1, heat winners included Saxton Randall (Durban), Karl Steen (Morningside), Jannik Bouwer (JBay), Angelo Faulkner (JBay), Ryan Lightfoot (JBay) and Eli Beukes (Kommetjie) amongst others. "My strategy was just to impress the judges," said Faulkner on his heat win, adding "So I'm happy with how it went."
“It was another great day here at Magnatubes,” said Billabong South Africa marketing manager Chad D’Arcy. “The forecast for the rest of the waiting period looks a bit tricky, but we should most likely be surfing tomorrow. We will reconvene here at Magnatubes in the morning to assess the conditions and make a call.”

Action continued today at the J-Bay Open, Stop No. 6 on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT). The competition ran through the remaining heats of Round 3 in two-to-four foot (0.5 - 1 metre) surf at Jeffreys Bay and the world’s best fought for a place in Round 4.
Top seeds Adriano de Souza (BRA) and Mick Fanning (AUS) were dominant, winning through their heats alongside Kelly Slater (USA) and the day’s standout performer Gabriel Medina (BRA). Round 3 also dealt out upsets when both Filipe Toledo (BRA) and Joel Parkinson (AUS) were eliminated from the competition in 13th place at the hands of Alejo Muniz (BRA) and Wiggolly Dantas (BRA).
Reigning WSL Champion Gabriel Medina (BRA) came out firing in his heat against Matt Wilkinson (AUS), and his aerial antics earned him a near-perfect 9.47 on his opening ride. He backed it up with another excellent score but Wilkinson quickly answered with a 9.57 for a series of critical snaps all the way down the line to put him back in contention. In an impressive return to form another backside air from the Brazilian just before the buzzer netted him a 9.60 and the highest heat total of the competition so far, a 19.07.
“That was a pretty fun heat,” said Medina. “I got a lot of waves. The year has been pretty tough for me and it feels good to make this Round 3. Now it’s a no-loser round so it’s more relaxed. You can choose your waves and do your thing. I just want to keep going and keep the ball rolling.”
Jeep ratings leader Adriano de Souza (BRA) took on wildcard Dane Reynolds (USA) in Heat 6 of Round 3. Both surfers kept busy through the heat but De Souza netted a heat high 7.00 and left the former World No. 4 searching for a 6.21. The J-Bay Open marks the third CT appearance of the year for Reynolds and he was eliminated in 13th place while De Souza moved through to Round 4.
“Every day is different and you have to prepare yourself for any kind of conditions,” De Souza said. “I wanted to compete yesterday in amazing conditions but I surfed early this morning just to try it out. I realized the sets were slow and I would have to try to put pressure on him (Reynolds), so that’s what I did and it worked. I’m happy to move forward and I’m really hungry for this contest. I’m really prepared for J-Bay, I came 10 days early and worked so hard. The results right now are going good and it’s showing me that I have to keep it going, keep rolling and keep my strategy. I hope I walk away with a good result, that’s what I’m looking for here.”
Defending three-time event winner Mick Fanning (AUS) looked at ease in the morning conditions at Jeffreys Bay. Fanning faced C.J. Hobgood (USA) in Heat 7 of Round 3. The exceptional speed and power of the three-time World Champion netted him two excellent scores and left Hobgood in a combination situation. The American was able to escape with a 7.83 but couldn’t find the near-perfect score he needed to overcome Fanning and goes home with his best result of the season.
“I knew I had to put it all together and I got a couple of 8’s which settled the nerves a little,” said Fanning. “But still, C.J. (Hobgood), he’s a World Champion, he’s a hero of mine and he never gives up. That’s what I love about him. I still had to keep my head on the whole way through.”
11-time World Champion Kelly Slater (USA) is the most successful surfer at Jeffreys Bay with four CT wins and he faced current World No. 30 Kolohe Andino (USA) in Round 3 today. Slater used his experience and wave knowledge to deliver smooth, powerful surfing that was too much for Andino to overcome. Currently in 11th place on the Jeep Leaderboard and without a podium finish since Tahiti last year, Slater is looking for a good result in J-Bay to improve on a disappointing start to the season. Slater will face Fanning and Medina in an all-star Round 4 match-up when competition resumes, with 15 World Titles and seven J-Bay Open wins among the trio.
“J-Bay is one of those waves you grow up wishing you could surf,” said Slater. “I just have great memories here and it’s a really fun place. This morning was tough, that first heat with Parko and Wiggolly (Dantas), I would have been scared to be in that heat. The conditions are alright now, there are a few waves but the swell is dying.”
Current World No. 2 Filipe Toledo (BRA) faced in-form replacement surfer Alejo Muniz (BRA) in the final heat of the day. Toledo held the lead until Muniz found the wave of the day, posted a near-perfect 9.80 and snatched the top spot. Despite two impressive 8-point rides from Toledo he was eliminated in 13th place while Muniz moves through to Round 4.
“I don’t know where that wave came from but I knew it would be the only chance I had,” said Muniz. “Filipe (Toledo) is the best surfer right now. He doesn’t need a big wave to get the high scores. To be able to surf against him here as a wildcard, I just feel so lucky. I’m feeling amazing. Last year I learnt a lot and I took everything I learnt and put it to work on the QS, which is my main goal this year. I’m stoked to have one more opportunity to make some heats here.”
After an outstanding performance yesterday Joel Parkinson (AUS) was taken out by rookie Wiggolly Dantas (BRA). Parkinson was the first to build his scoreline after a heat restart but the Brazilian surfed like a seasoned campaigner and netted himself the score of the heat, an 8.33. The young goofyfooter kept busy and backed up his score, leaving the 2012 World Champion in need of an 8.63 to stay in the competition. Parkinson waited patiently as the time ran out but wasn’t able to find a wave and the two-time event winner was eliminated in 13th place, his worst ever result in a CT event at Jeffreys Bay.
“I just kept focused and I just wanted to get the bigger waves,” said Dantas. “I know Parko surfs this wave pretty good. He’s been coming here for like 15 years already. I’m the rookie and I just want to do my best and just get the best waves, and I’m so stoked I made it.”
“There’s always going to be a winner and a loser, but there just wasn’t a lot of opportunity,” said Parkinson. “It is a bit disappointing to think that I’m sitting kind of midway in the Tour and I really feel like I should be a lot higher up. No hard feelings against Wiggolly (Dantas) but I’d really like to get him in a nice consistent Trestles or something.”
Another rookie to upset his more experienced opponent was Keanu Asing (HAW) in Heat 10 who eliminated World No. 8 Josh Kerr (AUS). Asing moves through to Round 4 where he will face Muniz and Michel Bourez (PYF), who defeated Bede Durbidge (AUS) in Heat 11 with a tie break win.
“It’s so hard, Josh (Kerr) is such a great competitor,” said Asing. “He’s such a good athlete and he’s in the top 10 for a reason, I have so much respect for him. It brings the best out of me to compete against these top guys. It’s tough being a rookie, you’re still learning.”
“You get more hungry when you’re out,” said Bourez. “You feel like you’re missing something big watching from home. I realized I needed to get back on my feet and I started training. I really wanted to surf in Fiji but I’m happy to be here in J-Bay.”
