Let's Feed JBay


We teamed up with Jeffrey's Bay to help people in South Africa

Jeffreys bay offers one of the best waves on earth. This magical remote place somewhere in Southafrica is and has always been an important spot for surfers through centuries. Jeffreys Bay shaped surfing, even though it was not always in the spotlight. To safe it’s beautiful people, nature and the future of a new youth we need to act now:

  • Medical supply for high risk patients and hospitals
  • Crowdfunding for food supplies with our partner 2MORESMILES South Africa
  • Charity Auction - sustainably and in the long term support for the community of Jeffreys Bay and projects partners

Behind the Story

Matteo Attanasio (MAMA Pictures) - main partner of Just help e.V. - reached out, after his long time friend Remi Petersen and his crew reported about the situation in Jeffreys Bay in COVID-19 times and which specific problems the community there is faced with.
South Africa is in many ways far removed from the rest of the world. Although with many issues people can live pretty care free. When the coronavirus started to take shape, people couldn’t comprehend the measures that would be put in place. The country cannot afford a shut down, no matter the cost.

A friend group, Rhynhardt (Chokka) Trahms, Tobias Schroeder, Dylan Lightfoot and Remi Petersen are most involved with Steven Sawyer and a few others help.
As some of the only surf orientated youth crew left in J-bay, they are very involved with the community and while every one else had to stay inside, some of the crew, particularly Chokka, were in a position to see first hand what was happening in the rural and informal settlements.
