Surfari 2017 – Surfing in Second Life

Hi everyone! I’m feeling super summery today even if the weather in the UK has taken a very wet turn, I have some gorgeous items from The Epiphany to show you but more importantly my new (but old) obsession and an upcoming event – Surfing in Second Life and Surfari 2017!

Surfari

A few months ago when my friend sent me a TP to the beach, I could never have imagined the fun I would be having now. The surfing community in Second Life has the perfect mix of competition and fun and there’s always someone ready to hang out at the beach and show you the ropes.

I’ve always loved surfing, I’m pretty sure it started when I was like 13 years old and I randomly rented Blue Crush to watch on VHS and I was obsessed for a long time. If you’re a wannabe-surfer like myself then I highly recommend joining us at the beach and who knows, maybe we’ll see you compete next season. I really hope to film some of the next week and future events so watch this space!

If you’re curious please take a trip to the beautiful Solace Dreams and join the Second Life Surfing Association group to find out more. We’re waiting for you!

This week is the start of Surfari! For the next week, we will be travelling to a new beach each day for a full day of events. This is a fantastic way to travel the grid and explore some of the stunning surf beaches that Second Life has to offer!

This is coinciding with week 2 of Surf Camp; a week full of lessons and seminars from SL’s top surfers. If you’re interested in surfing now is a fantastic time to drop by as each board is provided and the lessons are free!

Please join the Second Life Surfing Association In-world group for announcements regarding Surf Camp and Surfari – each beach will be announced on the day so grab your board, buckle up inside the van and enjoy the ride!
