The sport section supplies most of the general sporting equipment for cricket, soccer, rugby, tennis, hockey, squash, swimming, darts and a few other sports.

“We will adapt and make a plan according to what our customers want,” said Marlon.

Mike is extremely excited to head-up the new sport section at Extreme Marine.

“Whatever basic equipment our local sportsmen and -women need, we will have it. If not, we will make a plan to get it,” said Mike.

“I like a challenge, especially if it is sport rela-ted. So, I really look forward to this one.”

Hiking on the rise

According to Marlon, hiking as an outdoor sport is gaining a lot of popularity in Uiten-hage. Therefore he plans to also stock Extreme Marine with basic hiking gear.

“We have started the sport section on a small scale, but have already enjoyed good support from the community,” said Marlon.
