2010-11-09 00:00

THE South Coast Fever, in partnership with Ugu South Coast Tourism, has put together a nine-day extreme sports festival over the peak December holiday season.

The South Coast FeverX Games will begin on December 11 and end on December 19, and will see members of the public given the chance to compete in extreme sports.

Mountain biking, surfing, bodyboarding and endurocross make up some of the events that will be on offer during the nine-day event.

More than R100 000 in prize money will be on offer and other prizes will also be awarded.

Each extreme sports event will be organised by experts within that particular field.

South Coast resident and bodyboarder Derek Footit is one such expert.

South African wakeboarding team coach and rider Kevin Dry will be putting together wakeboarding sessions at the Umtamvuna River Lodge.

Entertainment tents will be erected throughout the event for members of the public to watch the very best in South African entertainment. The line-up includes Prime Circle, John Ellis and the City Bowl Mizers.

On Thursday December 16, a Reconciliation Day concert will showcase one of the country’s best known reggae bands, Tidal Waves, performing alongside the avant-garde Cape Town group, Gazelle.

A Mr FeverX competition will follow on the final night of the games. Only competitors who have taken part in at least one of the sport events will be considered for participation.

Event co-ordinator Neil Tapinos says he is very excited about the festival.

“The plans have been put in place to ensure that the South Coast FeverX Games will be unlike anything the coast has ever seen,” he said.

“With so much variety on offer, there really is something for everybody.”
