Bundy Reef Benefit Concert + More

This Saturday August 19th, we will be having a benefit concert day plus more for Bundy Reef.

You all are what keeps this place going!

There will be a live concert from Tauri Tigerpaw starting in at 11am SLT.

From 10am – 2pm SLT we will be having a wave competition.  Several loaner surfboards will be available.

You don’t have to be an experienced SL surfer, you just need to want to get out on the waves and have some fun.

How many waves can you catch?

Mark your calendars!

Sons of Beaches

So, the surfing competition season is over for now.  You’ve been practicing hard to get ready and going from one competition venue to another.  Now you’re ready to just hang out on a beach and surf for fun.  But where to go?  How do you find those beaches you don’t already know about just to try something different?

You can use the built-in search within your SL browser and look for places that have “surf” or “surfing” in their description.  You’ll find tons!  Tons of places where they use that as a  search keyword to attract visitors but don’t have anything close to surfable waves.

You can use the Linden Labs Destination Guide and look in the Surfing category.  While there are only 7 places listed at the time of this writing, they are at least going to be sims that actually offer surfing.  If you own a sim, or can post Events for a surfing sim, you might consider submitting your venue for inclusion in the Destination Guide.  This may be the first place someone new to the surfing community may look.

Surfing TP Board_001Clairebear (tclairetbeart.aeon) has also been providing at no charge a Surfing Community Teleport Board dedicated to surfing sims.  It uses a backend database to communicate location information to other teleport boards that are scattered around SL.  Surfing sims that set up these boards can then become teleportation hubs to other surfing sims who set up these boards.  The current version of the board supports up to 40 sims.  The board currently has 19 surfing spots.  Any sim that has a board can take you to any other sim with a board, but Claire’s place makes for a good starting point.  If you have a surfing spot and would like a teleport board, just IM Claire inworld and she can send you a “kit”.

Sim List SignA less sophisticated approach is picking up a notecard list of surfing sims that was begun years ago by Socks Clawtooth (2009, I think) and published by SurfWatch.  The list is maintained on roughly a monthly basis and each sim is verified to be running surfable waves at the time it’s published.  As of the July 2016 list, it has 74 surfing sims.

A number of surfing sim owners have the list available, such as El Diablo.  The most current copies are always made available in the shark warning sign on beaches at Solace Dreams by the board rezzers, close to the Hall of Fame building, and at a rental hut that’s off by itself on a little island as well as the one on Bluff Cove by the board rezzers and TP Board.

Any of these sources should help find some fun places to surf.  Enjoy your between competition season time and get out there and surf!!!!

More Changes for November Comp?

SLSA+logo1Living up to it’s motto, “A Season of Change,” the November comp has been moved to Solace Beach. But which wave will run? It was posted in the forums that the HP Sunset would be the wave we would ride, but apparently someone said “Not so fast there…Let’s take it to the people.”

There is a brand new wave that is really Old School in the style of the old Epic wave.  And now the directors want to know. Which wave would you prefer to ride on of the two: the Sunset or the “Epic Lite”? The discussion about the wave choice on the forums is chock full of info on the new wave. A highlite of the new wave is it is low lag.

You can try out the new wave at Bundy Reef and then run over to Solace Dreams and hop on the Sunset. I would really suggest you try both out, even if you think you know the Sunset, because you may not know “this” Sunset and how it runs at Solace Dreams. It’s the 200m version, so you need to hussle your arse to use the whole wave (aweome! challenge). There is the option of using the 100m Sunset instead. Keep in mind that there are a ton of Halloween decorations up right now at Solace, so until those come down it may be a bit laggy.

After you have had a change to ride both waves, take yourself over to the forums and weigh in on the conversation about which wave you think should run. The directors would like to make a decision by Sunday, as the comp is only two weeks away. And no matter which wave is chosen we all want max time on it to practice.
