We thought you might be wondering why we are setting up a site like SeriousExtreme so here’s a bit of info on us…..
So what started it all off?
Well, a long time ago (around 2009) in a galaxy not so far away (Scotland) three friends were trawling the internet for new adventures that we could fit around our increasingly awkward schedules.
We found some places and booked to go, then when we talked to others we found more places, and before we knew it we had quite the social calendar.
What we found out was that almost everyone who was involved had heard about “Activity B” from someone who was doing “Activity A” and invited them along, much as we had done. So the idea to set up a network was born.
THEN, around early 2016 there was lots being booked for stag and hen parties, milestone birthdays, weekends away, days out and events and the same topic started coming up in conversation… “I’ve never done this before but my friend invited me along and I thought it might be fun”
And it became obvious that the same problem still existed, although there was so much more convenience and more places actually had websites you could search for, people still didn’t know where to look and in some cases, what to look for.
So it was decided that there was only one thing to do, set up a site that had helped the small businesses that run adventure sports get exposure (without exuberant costs) and gave newbies the opportunity to see whats available….
And so SeriousExtreme.com was born!

My event is ticketed, can I link to the payment page?
There will be a field for listing your cost of the event and the website address, we suggest putting the link to the payment page in the website box to make it as easy as possible to find
How long will my event be online?
It will be added once posted and will stay online until the last day of the event (unless deleted by you or admins)
I’ve had to cancel the event last minute, how do I let people know?
Obviously if your event is ticketed you will have a list of anyone who has bought tickets but if not, before deleting, please look on the right hand side of the listing you will see a box that says “event attendees”, anyone who has clicked to say they are attending will be there and you can message them to let them know.
