Experience the 2016 J-Bay Open with Corona

The World Surf League (WSL) & Corona have a signed a multi-year partnership agreement making Corona the Official Beer of the World Surf League globally. Which means you can expect something special from the Corona when the world’s best surfers head to Jeffrey’s Bay, arguably the world’s best right hand point break, (we love saying that), for the 2016 J-Bay Open from 6 – 17 July.

Iced Corona, with a wedge of lime stuffed down the neck, has been on surfers lips since way back, when wave riders first flocked to the point breaks of Baja, regularly cracking open a post-session refresher while saluting the still-cooking lineup and the setting sun. This year, to celebrate their association with the WSL, the good folk at Mexico’s finest beer, are rolling out the big guns to help celebrate the J-Bay Open. You could win anything from legendary hand-shaped Spider Murphy surfboards, to a trip to for two to surf Tahiti? Not to mention the Corona Beach Shack, where you can sink a few refreshing beers and watch the world’s best surfers put it on a rail at the world’s finest point.

At each stop of the WSL Championship Tour, Corona will help ensure the experience of the fans is as unforgettable as the taste of their beer. J-Bay is gonna be special.

Corona will broadcast live action from both the bar and the J-Bay Pro which will all be available on www.coronaextra.co.za.

Did we say Tahiti?
Now imagine surfing that hand shaped board of yours in the dredging pits of Tahiti?! This is the big one. Corona are giving away a trip for two to Tahiti! Anyone who buys a bucket or six pack of Corona at one of the participating bottle stores, bars or restaurants in J-Bay during the 2016 J-Bay Open automatically puts their name in the hat to win this trip of a lifetime.

Breathtaking Tahiti.

FOMO @ Maboneng
Feeling left out in Jozi, as usual? Don’t quit your day job just yet, Corona have cooked up something special for all the landlocked surf lovers. Corona are planning a SunSets Cinema at The Bioscope in Maboneng during the Open, reconnecting all those city slickers grafting in the big smoke, saving up for their next tropical surf mission, to the beloved beach and South Africa’s premium surfing event.


Cut Snake
As if the VIP accommodation, live updates, free wifi, giveaways, shaping demos, surfboards, film screenings, Tahiti weren’t enough. Corona are bringing out Cut Snake, the hugely popular (surf-related) electronic duo from the States. Now known by their fans as Cut Snake, ex-pro surfers, Leigh Sedley and Paul Fisher, will be performing their groovy deep and tech house at this year’s event, for your grooving pleasure.

And that, folks, is how Corona are planning to keep you entertained during the WSL J-Bay Pro.

See you at the 2016 J-Bay Open.
