Van Damme Is Back!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

But this time he’s the one getting his Beeehind whooped!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Loaded is everywhere. We don’t focus all our attention on one particular thing (because you don’t only need our nutritional value and awesome taste at one time in the day). We surf, we wakeboard, we play soccer and we rock out at music festivals. We even get involved in the Adventure Boot camps. We’re everywhere you are, and everything you need to get going!

Most recently we were at a women’s self defence talk hosted by Adventure Boot Camp, where SA’s favourite weatherman Derek Van Damme took a bit of a beating from a woman old enough to be his mom!

BOOM!

This was hosted at the Adventure Boot Camp Loaded Smoothies challenge at Suikerbossie on one glorious Saturday morning.

We’re not sure the other Van Damme would be so happy about this…

Momentum builds for Guinness World Record attempt at Earthwave Beach Festival

Momentum is building for the Guinness World Record attempt for the ‘most surfers riding the same wave’ that will be staged at the Earthwave Beach Festival in Muizenberg on the weekend 25 & 26 September.

The festival offers a full program of events over the two days including a nationally rated Longboard surfing contest, Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) races in the waves, plenty of beach activities for all ages, talks and demonstrations on environmentally sustainable topics and products, with the highlight being the attempt to get more than 110 surfers to ride the same wave for more than five seconds.

Supported by Loaded Smoothies, who will be dispensing their range of nutritious health drinks to participants and spectators, Earthwave also provides a forum for organisations such as Spin 4 Charity, the Sunflower Fund and the Shark Spotters program to raise awareness and funds for their worthy causes.

Tens of thousands of Rands of branded products will be given away, raffled, auctioned and won in activities like the popular Dig for Gold, beach cleanups. Prizes include Kustom footwear as worn by Joel Parkinson and other world and world-class surfers, environmentally friendly furniture items designed by TV personality Aidan Bennetts, Derevko Wetsuits, Hemporium products, New Balance shoes, apparel and accessories by O’Neill and Caves Surfwear and many more.

The Corona Earthwave After-Party will showcase the newly revamped Brass Bell in Kalk Bay where surf band the Little Kings, promo-girls, surf movies from the Wavescape Film Festival and more prizes and auctions, including five cases of Mexico’s favourite beer, will ensure a riot of fun and mayhem from 5pm until late on the Sunday evening!

The SUP races, organised and run by Coreban International, will use an ‘M’ shaped course that sees competitors paddling in and out through the waves twice in each heat, a first for Muizenberg. With valuable prizes at stake, the entire event will be completed on the Saturday.

The longboard surfing event, run by the WP Longboard Club, is stop No. 3 of 5 on the inaugural SA Longboard Tour and features a number of the country’s top performers. Starting on Saturday morning, the finals will be held on Sunday morning with the awards presentation staged just before an expected 500 or more participants line up to break the Guinness World Record at 12.30pm.

The SUP and longboard competitors and participants in the Guinness World Record attempt, who can include anyone who can stand up and ride a wave for five seconds or more, will be fueled by Monster Energy who will also be providing stickers, tattoos and other promotional items for all attending the festival.

Registration for the GWR starts at 10am on the Sunday and those wishing to be part of record breaking attempt are advised to check in early to prevent parking hassles and avoid the rush before the lineup. Entry costs R50 and all participants need to sign an indemnity form (signed by a parent/guardian for those under 18) and provide an email address to which an official certificate of participation will be sent.

The Earthwave Beach Festival at Muizenberg provides unlimited sponsorship opportunities for companies and organisations keen on promoting their environmental credentials or simply wanting to showcase their products and services to a receptive audience and through the saturation media coverage.

For further information see www.kahunasurf.co.za/kp/earthwave and the Facebook group Earthwave Beach Festival 2010.

The fourth annual edition of the event is produced by Kahuna Promotions and proudly supported by Wavescape, the official online and surf forecasting partner for Earthwave.

Contact kahunasurf@mweb.co.za for details on how to become part of this sustainable lifestyles initiative.

Make sure you join in, find us on the beach and grab a smoothie, it’s the perfect pre-world record snack!

Oppikoppi 2010: Brought To You By LOADED Smoothies

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

LOADED Smoothies, never wanting to miss a good time, sent Nash of Bangers and Nash to represent us at Oppikoppi. He drove up to Joburg, from Cape Town, in a day, hit the festival for four days and headed straight back down! Powered of course by our delicious smoothies.

oppi beeld

Here’s a short summary of his trip.

“Let me kick this off by saying Oppikoppi is like no other festival I have ever been to. It’s in the middle of nowhere, dusty, dry, thorny and hard.

Oppikoppi is a festival for people who live for festivals. People who live for music. Everyone there is there because they are passionate about the event. They are there for the party and the bands. All else is forsaken. Comfort, food and skin are sacrificed, willingly. And the inevitable answer to any question will always be ‘because this is Oppikoppi’.

Why am I bleeding? Why did I wake up under a car two kilometres from my tent with a broken knee and no specs? Why did I fall in a fire and have to be pulled out before my hair burst into flames? Why am I blowing blood out of my nose? Why am I sunburnt? Why am I dying of hypothermia?

Because this is Oppikoppi!

And LOADED was there in full force!

We partied, ate, danced, soaked up the sun, froze at night, told stories around a campfire, made new stories and new friends. We took a million photos and a million footsteps between the five stages, friends’ camp sites and the best potjie stand in South Africa.

All in all it was the most amazing festival. It was like nothing I could have ever expected and by the time it was done I was broken. Yet one day later I needed to go back. The people, the vibe, the music, the dust, I fell in love with it all. Real people, good music and lots and lots of Afrikaans. I was even thinking in Afrikaans by the end of the weekend.

One thing is for sure, I’ll be back next year. “

Check out the gallery.

And this was just a warm up to Rocking The Daisies! Keep an eye on this space because we have some exciting stuff planned.
