Thursday September 26th – Surfers competing on Day Two of the of the 2019 Sea Harvest SA Junior Surfing Championships gave a sigh of relief when they were greeted with contestable 2-3 foot Lower Point surf on Day Two of this five day event.
After enduring an opening day of strong onshore winds and tough surf, the vibe on the beach at this iconic surf spot on Day Two was mellow, just like the waves and the weather.
Conditions were ideal for the U12 Boys who got proceedings going in style. For the second day in a row Cape Town Surfriders had something special to celebrate as talented Kommetjie surfer Levi Kolnik posted a 16 point heat score, which was the highest score of the contest so far.
Joining Kolnik as Round One heat winners were his Cape Town Surfrider’s team mate Ryan Schoon and two eThekwni Surfriders competitors, Matt Canning and Joshua Jefferis.
Round One of the U16 girls Division was next to compete and here all three heats were won by the 2019 National Junior Team members, Ceara Knight of Cape Town Surfriders, Zoe Steyn of Buffalo City Surfriders and Kayla Nogueira of eThekweni Surfriders.
Then it was the turn of the U14 Girls where Sarah Scott and Scarlette van Jaarsveldt of Cape Town Surfriders, Chloe Ribbink of eThekweni and Gemma Hannafey of Buffalo City won their first round encounters.
The U12 Girls Division was the last of the Round One heats to be held. Meka Loots of Buffalo City and Anastasia Venter of Cape Winelands both won their way through to the Final in this Division.
Day Two was completed by a number of Round Two Repercharge heats. In the Repercharges. competitors who did not progress directly to Round Three from Round One have a second chance to continue in the event.
