[R] Block Bootstrap Simulation

I am trying to run a time series block bootstrap.  I have a dataset of length t = n*k. 
I want to sample n blocks of length k from the data.  

I don't want to use loop because a) the overhead and b) I'm comparing it with another technique that doesn't require a loop, and programming the simulation without the loop gave me an insight into the solution of the problem
Is there a way of doing this without using a loop?

v<-sample(s, replace=TRUE)

Doesn't work
