Day Two of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SA Surfing Championships hosted by Buffalo City moved to Nahoon Corner

Testing conditions at Nahoon Reef on Day Two of the 2019 Mercedes–Benz South African Surfing Championships hosted by Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality have forced organisers to move the event to an alternate venue at nearby Nahoon Corner.

Twenty two heats will be completed at the Nahoon Corner venue and as the conditions settle, contest officials hope to be back at the primary venue, Nahoon Reef, from tomorrow until the event is concluded on Sunday.
