Extreme Outdoor League was founded by three men that saw the need for change in the 4x4 industry. Having realized that the general 4x4 enthusiast is often looking for new ways & places in which to get to know his/her vehicle better, they came together and decided to join their skills & knowledge in bringing forth a new dimension to the world of 4x4 – and so, the Extreme Outdoor League was founded.
Being passionate about the sport and industry, all three of us aim to bring a fun, unique and challenging competition to our participants in the league. We hope to be able to set a standard for 4x4 in South Africa and we have gone to great lengths to ensure that all our participants & competitors walk away every day having learnt something new about the game of 4x4.
