Cloudbreak and Supertubes both require a high surfing IQ: Surfers who match their tempo with the speed of the wave have the most success. You need to take in the information the wall ahead is giving well before the time comes to launch your choice of maneuvers. That’s what makes guys like Tom Curren, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson and Jordy Smith so great at Jeffreys Bay. Just like Fiji, J-Bay can be inconsistent, so a surfer’s ability to shrug off the pressure while he waits for that one perfect wave is key.
