JEFFREYS BAY, South Africa (Friday, July 15, 2011) – The Billlabong Pro Jeffreys Bay, Event No. 4 of 11 on the 2011 ASP World Title season, was called ON this morning, with Round 1 commencing in clean three-to-four foot (1 metre) waves at 7:30am.

“We’ve seen a slight increase since yesterday and it’s become more consistent so we’ll be commencing Round 1 at 7:30am,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge said. “While it’s not classic Jeffreys Bay, it’s still very contestable and we’ll be taking advantage of what’s on offer this morning.”
