All the action will be going down at the V&A Waterfront’s Gateway Canal, where you can expect over 6,000 extreme sports-loving spectators to attend the day-long event. The festival – now in its fourth year – opens at 10am and close at 8pm, followed by an extreme concert at Cape Town’s hottest nightclub The Dragon Room on Harrington Street with top local DJ’s and bands playing into the night.

Markus Museler (Old School Productions), owner of the event, had the following to say about Hunter eXtreme’s involvement.

We are very excited that Hunter’s eXtreme has joined the Ultimate X family and will be working alongside us to help grow action sports within SA. Through our involvement in and exposure to related events from across the globe, we are also confident that 2013 will be our most extreme spectator experience to date.

Watch 25 of the country’s best riders as well as international competitors such as Alastair Sayer (FMX), Greg Illingworth (BMX), Louis Taubert (Skateboarding) and Aaron Hadlow (wakeboarding) transform the Gateway Canal into an extreme sporting paradise with death-defying stunts and record breaking attempts, all for a piece of the R100 000 in cash prize and the prestigious title of the Hunter’s eXtreme Ultimate X Gold 2013 South African champion.

Mike Silver, of experiential marketing partner Stretch, said that this year’s festival would be bigger and better than ever before.

‘Ultimate X has grown massively both in terms of numbers attending and on site experience. Through a national media campaign in partnership with Hunters eXtreme, the 2013 edition will see mass awareness created about both the event itself and action sports in SA.’ He continues

We expect to smash previous numbers with new features including multiple international riders competing, staging of the inaugural Ultimate X Gamer competition presented by Mountain Dew and the Inner City Muscle Car Show. (Silver)

Hunter’s eXtreme is all about social stamina and making the good times last longer, which is why partnering with this event suits the brand perfectly (Ben van Der Merwe, Junior Brand Manager of Hunter’s SA).

‘Keeping our consumers refreshed is one thing, but supporting an event that promotes an active lifestyle whilst encouraging people to live life to the fullest is very exciting platform for the brand and we’re delighted to be able to assist in bringing fans the ultimate in extreme sports entertainment.’ (van Der Merwe)
