East London, South Africa (18 April 2024) – World Waveski Surfing Titles (WWST) proudly announces its strategic partnership with Buffalo City Tourism. This collaboration signifies a momentous milestone for both entities, uniting their commitment to adventure, culture, and sporting excellence within Buffalo City.

World Waveski Surfing Titles, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Nahoon Reef within the Nahoon Nature Reserve, promises to captivate audiences. Buffalo City Tourism’s involvement signifies the experience, ensuring that visitors—from near and far—discover the hidden gems of this unique coastline. With a rich historical and cultural heritage, Buffalo City serves as a gateway to Eastern Cape adventures. The partnership between WWST and Buffalo City Tourism brings a much-needed positive impact to the region and its surroundings.

“Buffalo City Tourism is thrilled to support the 2024 WWST,” says Nosisa Rubushe at Buffalo City Tourism. 

“This partnership with WWST provides Buffalo City with brand exposure and enhances social cohesion. The event brings economic spin-offs and investment opportunities to the city, benefiting local businesses, tour guides, hotels, hawkers, security industry, B&Bs, shopping malls, and filling stations” she further states.

From 28 June to 7 July 2024, over 100 athletes from 15 countries will converge on our shores, vying for the coveted title of World Champion. Sanctioned by the World Waveski Surfing Association, this biennial event promises high-flying action in big, powerful surf at the famous Nahoon Reef. But it’s not just for the pros – WWST will also host demo days, inviting children and adults to experience waveski surfing under the guidance of the world’s best.

On Tuesday, 09 April, the World Waveski Surfing Titles organisers hosted a strategic meeting with all stakeholders and government officials associated with executing this world championship event. The meeting, held at the East London Golf Club, proved fruitful, ensuring all parties are ready to welcome the world to Buffalo City this June.
