During October 2013, Myself (HS van der Linde) and Jade Eloff, participated in the first Surf-to-Ski bike challenge. The route took us from Coffee Bay in the Eastern Cape – right up to Tiffendale – 100% off-road Ave 160km per day, and more than 8 hours in the saddle, made this one of the most physically demanding challenged we have ever endured. Frank Sullivan and the Phakamisa team, offered to provide us with the necessary supplements for this challenge. This includes the very versatile “twin-pouch” porridge, the energy bars, and energy drinks. I think the products are a very good fit to what endurance athletes require – good tasty snacks providing long lasting energy. I must compliment the team for the quality product they have produced, which certainly helped a lot through the challenge. Thanks guys – hope to see you at the 2014 challenge

I really appreciate your efforts in ensuring that I keep healthy whilst building a strong body to endure distance running. I have commenced my training after recovering from an injury, however I am now fully recovered and starting to regain my strength. I will do my first Marathon on the 1st of March Running has become my strength and that’s the only time I seem to found a way to express myself and be happy. Undoubtedly, the Phakamisa Tablets and drinks keeps me going all the time.” Thank you Bongani!
