Augusta Adventure Fest

AUGUSTA – SYNONYMOUS WITH ‘ADVENTURE’

Hot on the wheels of the Cape to Cape Mountain Bike Race comes the Augusta Adventure Fest,
the biggest adventure race in the world! A multi race, multi adventure weekend for everyone. Saturday November 1st and Sunday 2nd.

Originally the Anaconda Adventure Race came to town with the usual proviso that the race would be held for 2 years then move onto another location. However…… the organisers and competitors where so taken with the natural beauty and challenging wilderness and no doubt the friendly welcoming locals of Augusta, it was decided to hold an annual event here.

Good luck to all competitors, it looks like the weather will be perfect for the event at 23c forecast for both days and many will decide to extend their stay, so don’t forget to listen to 2oceansFM and why not contact us to request a song or just to shout out to your friends and fellow competitors.

Where the hell is Matt?

Put simply, Matt dances (badly) around the world.

Matthew “Matt” Harding is a self described “deadbeat from Westport, Connecticut”
At 23 Matt decided to go see the world, along the way he started dancing and posting the videos to the web.
The rest is well…. history as they say.

Check out Matt’s site to get to know more about him and see his other inspiring videos.

July’s Featured Video

When a bunch of friends gathered together at a party and began to joke about and sing a little ditty one of them had composed on a bus trip to pass the time, little did they know that  the song would gain over 4 million youtube hits in the first month.

Video of the Month

Ever wonder how they did the music for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (with Clint Eastwood)? It is so cool to see how it was made after all these years. Some of you may not be old enough to remember this classic from the ’60’s.   Turn it up nice and loud and enjoy. For those still caught in the ’60s groove — this is the answer to how that magnificent tune came about…Superb….wait till the guy whistles!
