Join hundreds of people celebrating the winter solstice and get the chance to win tens of thousands of Rands of products in Muizenberg this Saturday at the WaveJet South Africa launch party with legendary former World No. 3 ranked American surfer Cory Lopez.
The longest night of the year will see the Bluebird Garage in Albertyn Road decked out and ready to rock with well travelled band Crimson and DJ Dean Fuel providing the beats and Lopez talking of his storied exploits in Hawaii, Tahiti and other famous surf spots, signing autographs and mingling with party-goers.
Prizes include a full 7 ft Evo WaveJet system built by Frankie Oberholzer in Durban with a WaveJet Power Pod, a Blank Pod for non-powered use, a Seatooth®-enabled Wrist Controller and a Charging Station valued at R50 000 along with dozens of products totalling more than R25 000 from renowned international and local brands that will be given away in lucky draws and raffles.
Doors open at 6pm with Lopez introduced by celebrity MC Deon Bing at 7pm. Crimson, a Cape Town based duo who have appeared all over the Western Cape, kick in at 8pm while the first of the lucky winners will be announced at 9pm. Dean Fuel, who needs no introduction as the city’s top DJ, will get the dance floor buzzing from 10pm with his original compilations and you can dance till you drop!
Tickets for the party are selling out fast and can be purchased online at https://wavejet.nutickets.co.za/launch. General entrance is R100 while VIP treatment with separate entrance, free energy drinks and craft beer on tap and other perks is available at R150. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Surfers’ Circle Walk of Fame project.
If you’ve got any energy left, or even if you cannot make it to the party, get down to Surf Shack at Muizenberg Corner on Sunday where you can try out the WaveJet craft of your choice in the surf for free. All powered by the revolutionary, unique Personal Water Propulsion system, these craft will change the way you interact with water.
Cory Lopez will attend the Sunday open day between 12 noon and 3pm for signings and to talk about his experiences using WaveJet boards in waves from one to 20 foot.
