Mountain boarding or dirt boarding is one of the most fun and fastest growing extreme sports in South Africa and it’s taking shape in Mpumalanga.

It’s not for the faint hearted, but for adrenaline junkies,  it’s a balancing act.

Dirt boarding is a fledgling sport.

Riders are judged on creativity, stunts and air jumps, they must be able to ride in a variety of terrains.

American Jereme Leafe came to support and participate.

The sport also attracts females and everyone is a winner.

The only hurdle is acquiring sponsors.
