SPORTING and entertainment organisers and celebrities praised the inaugural FeverX extreme games and entertainment festival that ended yesterday after nine days of action on the South Coast.

According to event manager Neil Tapinos, organisers of the various disciplines that the festival was geared towards were incredibly satisfied with the historic event.

The FeverX Games brought various extreme sports together under one banner, helping to create a culture of healthy living and entertainment.

“It was great to see people enjoying themselves without ever overindulging in alcohol,” he said. “It was a testament to what the FeverX Games were all about: healthy living in extreme conditions!”

The daytime events that took place at various locations on the South Coast kept extreme sport enthusiasts as busy as ever.

“We’ve had bodyboarders fighting it out to be the king of the sea, surfers dancing on waves in St Mikes, wakeboarders showing how they can fly on water at night, freestylers doing quite the same in Margate, enduro cross riders racing against the very best in Jade Gutzeit and MTB bikers pushing their endurance levels to new extremes in the tough terrain of our South Coast cane fields,” he said.

“It truly has been a privilege to watch these incredible athletes and this event could not have happened without them.”

“We also had a great turnout with the MMA Fight Night, the FeverX Extreme Golf and the Touch Rugby tournament, which drew more contestants and spectators to our main venue at the Margate Sport School and the Margate Country Club,” he said. It wasn’t all about showing the best in extreme sport. The extreme entertainment that FeverX offered included live acts as well as comedians on a nightly basis.

“The South Coast has danced to the beats of the likes of Gazelle and Prime Circle and have laughed to jokes of Joey Rasdien and Chris Forrest,” he said. “What an amazing nine days!”

Tapinos said the event was launched to help ignite more interest in the South Coast as the number one holiday destination for healthy, outdoor-type holidaymakers.

“The FeverX Games, which was sponsored by the Fever and the South Coast Tourism, has attempted to bring together South Coasters and holidaymakers for nine days to enjoy a healthy lifestyle of extreme action and entertainment.

“Thanks to all involved who made this event such a success,” said Tapinos.

“We have learned some important lessons and look forward to growing this event into a bigger and better one next year.”
