With several weeks since the Billabong Pro in Rio, the best surfers in the world are understandably frothing to throw on the rashvest once again - and there's no better place that promotes raw, unadulterated competitive surfing than the planets greatest right-hand point break; Supertubes.

It's no coincidence that July in Jeffreys Bay sits slap bag in the middle of the Southern hemisphere's winter. This is because the point at Supers is perfectly positioned on the southern tip of Africa to receive the consistent winter swells that low-pressure storms generate deep in the South Atlantic.

And when the swell starts wrapping around the point, the flawless waves that thunder down the line are a site to behold.

So with 10 000 critical ratings points and $425 000 in prize-money up for grabs, current ratings leader and World Number 1, Adriano de Souza (BRA), defending champion and local favourite Jordy Smith (SA), 10X world champion Kelly Slater (USA) and perennial favourites and previous event winners, Taj Burrow (AUS), Joel Parkinson (AUS) and Mick Fanning (AUS) will all be travelling to J-Bay to take part in the event that many of them rate as one of their favourite all year.
