Criterion Power Sports hosted a successful get-together for action sports enthusiasts over the weekend.
Situated at Spillers’ Wharf, the shop held a sale on Fox clothing and riding gear, put on SeaDoo Sparks jet-ski demos and served as a venue for locals to watch the Red Bull Hare Scramble on a big screen on Sunday.
Among those watching the much-anticipated main event of the Erzbergrodeo was Nigel Young, the father of Paddock star Wade Young, who was the best-placed South African rider in 13th position.
Young was one of three South Coast riders who competed in the race, the others being Scott Bouverie and Blake Gutzeit.
“We had a decent group of people watching the live streaming of the race and we had a nice weekend overall. It’s the first time we’ve done it and we’re planning to do it every month.
“The Red Bull Romaniacs is coming up [15-19 July] and should also be streamed live so we’ll probably do the same for that,” said Criterion Power Sports owner Ronald Tarboton.
Tarboton said the gatherings will give the growing number of action sports fan on the South Coast a destination where they will be able to share their love of adrenaline-fuelled sports with like-minded people and socialise on the banks of the Mzimkhulu River.
eHowz!t deputy editor Quintin van Jaarsveld was treated to a ride in the brand new Can-Am Maverick by Tarboton and was impressed by the power and ‘explosiveness’ of the vehicle.
