Nestled between pine forests, fynbos and Martian like landscape, the Houwteq complex is situated 4km off the N2 just out side Grabouw.
The course is quick and fast, starting at the top riders push down a short straight into a tight right-hander. The hill banks to the left as you speed down the hill, about mid way riders will need to negotiate a hay bail chicane before the last drop which dips into the tight left-hand High Rising ...Dip aka "CARNAGE CORNER". The course is 1km long from top to bottom.
Some of the Eastern Cape longboarding crew are planning to paint the hills red in the Bloukrans Pass this weekend. Bloukrans is also home to the world's highest commercial bungy jump. So if the downhill skating is not enough adrenalin for you, you could always go jump 216m down the Bloukrans bridge.
The Stellenbosch longboard crew are trying to find people that would be interested in attending a premiere of "Drop: My life downhill". They are aiming for somewhere around the 19th - 26th March. Tickets should be around R35 each. Please respond to the event on Facebook, here. Peeps are asked only to respond if they are certain to attend. They need at least a 100 attendees to make the event happen.
