If, like me, your Fantasy surfer team is trying to claw its way back to respectability after brutal beatdowns at Margaret River and the Rio Pro, you'd do well to heed the above words of Mr.J-Bay, Shaun Tomson.


I called him last week to talk about what it takes to win at J-Bay, and his formula was relatively simple. Can you carve? Are you regularfoot? Then you've got a chance at J-Bay. If not, forget it.


When I looked at who I thought would do well, I wanted to break it down analytically, rather than subjectively.Tomson said.


What are the four factors that great J-Bay surfers share?

Tomson broke down the contenders by how well they filled four buckets:carving,confidence,regular vs goofyfoot, and X-factor.
  • Carving:
    This comes from recent Tour results, and from familiarity with having surfed J-Bay well before and having a good understanding of the break
  • Confidence:
    This comes from recent Tour results, and from familiarity with having surfed J-Bay well before and having a good understanding of the break
  • Regular vs Goofyfoot:
    This comes from recent Tour results, and from familiarity with having surfed J-Bay well before and having a good understanding of the break
  • X-factor:
    This comes from recent Tour results, and from familiarity with having surfed J-Bay well before and having a good understanding of the break
