Since its inception, the team behind the Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme sought to raise the profile of Hermanus and expose the region as the breath-taking hidden gem it is. The primary reason for this was to boost the local economy and promote community development. This includes the high-quality products and services provided for visitors by the local restaurants.

With the 2019 event just around the corner (26 – 28 April 2019), and entries already open, our team looked to the sources that fuel our athletes for inspiration. We challenged some of the local restaurants to do like our participants do: find a new Xtreme.

The 8 participating restaurants came up with their own inventive, out-of-the-box, Xtreme menu items last year that are available once again to the public from today, 18 March until 28 April 2019.
