15 Years of J-Bay
07/07/2021 | All photos by Alan van Gysen
J-Bay has been firing lately, as if to remind the World Tour what it's missing out on.
Groomed, six foot walls have been pouring down the point over the past week, coinciding with the traditional start of the contest waiting period.
Alan van Gysen has been making the pilgrimage to shoot the event - and the wave – for close on two decades. During that time, he has witnessed firsthand the iconic rivalries, dark horse upsets and era-defining performances. Oh, and Supertubes as good as it gets.
What better time then, for a dip into the archives? All captions by the photographer.
