This February Cape Town plays host to the country’s only and largest extreme sports lifestyle event, Ultimate X 2012 on Saturday 18 February 2011.

The Gateway Canal at the V&A Waterfront will be transformed into an extreme sporting paradise with death-defying stunts and dare-devil twists performed by the kings and queens of extreme BMX, FMX, skate and wake boarding in South Africa.

The event, in its third year, expects over 5000 extreme sports-loving spectators to attend the day-long festival in the Mother City. Gates open at 11am and close at 7pm, followed by an extreme concert at Zula Lounge in Long Street with top local DJ’s and bands playing into the night.

“Ultimate X is recognised as the elite platform for South African action sport athletes. We are hoping this event will inspire more young South Africans to take up action sports, whether BMX, FMX, skating or wake-boarding. Although the international arena has a longer history of extreme sports, South Africa has a lot of talented youngsters who have the potential to make our country synonymous with world-class action sport,” said Markus Museler of Old School Productions, South Africa’s leading extreme sports company and founder of Ultimate X.

Watch international competitors in action like Nick de Wit (FMX), Greg Illingworth (BMX) and Moses Adams (Skate) plus extreme stars like Alastair Sayer and Dallan Goldman on FMX; Colin and Stuart Louden on BMX; skaters Dlamini Dlamini and Justus Kotze; and wakeboarding extremists Devon Nassif and Nick Burton-Moore.

Twenty-three of the country’s best riders in each discipline will compete for a piece the R80 000 in cash prizes and the title of ABSA Ultimate X Gold 2012 South African champion.

Top South African bands and DJ’s plus a full bar service is available all day to keep guests hydrated, hyped and entertained. Spectators can relax on the two 25m decks by the canal that feature day-beds, bean bags, cocktail tables and sofa’s all under a huge shaded tent. Xbox 360 games will also be made available for the public to enjoy.

Pre-bought tickets from Computicket cost R80 + R10 booking fee for adults.

Tickets are also available at the gate at R100 for adults and R40 for children under four years old. Gates open at 11am and close at 7pm.
