Looking to get the adrenalin pumping through the dark winter months? Then try skateboarding at night. Here’s where and why 

HOT SPOTS 

Anywhere where it’s too hot by day. Skaters from Barcelona to Los Angeles hide from the heat and head out in the milder night.

DARK ARTS 

Floodlights are no substitute for sunlight, so you generally take it a bit easier with the obstacles and elaborate tricks.

DON’T GET CAUGHT 

When you’re ‘generator skating’ up on the roofs of US high schools, or ‘skitching’ – hanging off the back of cars, like Marty McFly – in New York City.

A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR AFTERWARDS?

COCKTAIL: Umhlanga Sling

Kelly John Bauwer is the star behind the bar at the five-star Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, a city a few clicks south of Durban on South Africa’s east coast. He has concocted the Umhlanga (pronounced ‘umshlanga’) Sling, a fresh and fruity refreshment, with a hint of mint.

Bauwer is raising this glass with a nod to the legendary Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, from where the Singapore Sling went global. Perhaps its South African cousin will follow.

INGREDIENTS:

Crushed ice

8 mint leaves

1 part cachaça

1 part mango juice

1 part pineapple juice Pineapple 

Mint to garnish

METHOD:

Muddle the mint in the ice in the glass (as you would for a mojito). Add the cachaça and the juices. Garnish with pineapple and mint.

Take these words into the night…
