Cool
PE Slope-Rebels.co.za (Port Elizabeth - South Africa) Index on page 1

Thought I'll start this thread for the South African Slopers especially the local PE okes

Anything goes in here that's not tooo relevant for the other threads.

So if you wanna talk Golden City catering or specials it goes here...

If you wanna talk about Sean's new hobby of scrap-booking it goes here..

If you are thinking of locking Sean in the porta-loo like at Hermanus 2006 it goes here....

If you wanna talk about Darren's new pink plane it goes in the Zally thread!

anyway.... here are some of my favorite video's:

Bangarang was shot in Hermanus South Africa. It was the first time we mounted a GoPro on the nose of a Mig7 (Thanks Sean) and this is the result.
Bangaram Hermanus 2012 (4 min 0 sec)


I think Bangarang was the "fire starter" and changed the way I made video's.

Here is a short video where I tried to capture everything that happened in 2012 on the slope and I can tell you one thing, if it wasn't for my sloping friends especially Sean... there would be no cool video's. I make the video's to make the special moments last longer.
My 2012 Sloping highlights! (3 min 27 sec)


Maitlands, Port Elizabeth is my home slope and I think this video best describes what it's like to fly at Maitlands and the emotion and gees on the slope.
The Maitland's Feeling (3 min 45 sec)


Here is a video of a recent (Feb 2013) roadtrip to Cape Town, Hermanus with my buddy Jim.
Hermanus Road Trip (8 min 34 sec)

Golden City is our Slope hang-out in the windy city of PE aka Nelson Mandela Bay.

On any given day you will find Sean there building something or passing time exploring the endless limits of scrap-booking.

Johan is the product developer / architect and is constantly supply Sean with cutting edge slopers which Sean then does something with.

I'm just there... call it PR and marketing.

There are many other characters but they will introduce themself during the next week or so depending which wind is blowing.
