St Francis Bay near Port Elizabeth, South Africa, is one of the top spots for surfers. There are beaches for all levels, and there are wonderful locations where the super-tubes form and 'A' class waves break, attracting the masters. Jeffreys Bay is one of the five most famous surfing destinations in the world and hosts the annual Billabong Pro ASP World Tour surfing event at Supertubes during July.
This photograph was taken at St Francis Bay in the late afternoon. As soon as the surf was up, dozens of surfers suddenly appeared on the beach to ride the waves.
