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!

Beau Ville Par La Mer

 BEAU VILLE PAR LE MAR

Hello beauts! Just a quick one today to showcase a couple of my fave things at the latest round of Uber.

I love this hair from Truth, the front wisp is adorable. I’m showing the version without the hat but the hat is just as cool. I also really enjoy the three mix and match pieces from KITJA – a little pricey when you have to buy each separately but they never falter on quality. And these heeled sandals from ISON are a must buy, they compliment their lacey dresses, also available at the event, perfectly .

Uber runs until June 25th, enjoy shopping!

I also want to quickly mention this sim I stumbled upon when looking for a location for this photo. Ville Par La Mer (City By The Sea) is a stunning build and whilst being extremely photogenic, is also an awesome place to chill. See Inara Pey’s post for a little bit more detail!

Blithe

Hello! I’ve decided to introduce a few different subjects to my site, I’ve recently remembered just how much I love to explore and photograph scenery, art work and the like. I will also be starting a few personal projects in the near future, one being my study at the Medici University, and will use this as a platform to write and record my journeys!

So today, I bring to you the brand new, expansive exploration project: Blithe.
Note: All photographs are raw, straight from the viewer with only some cropping and re-sizing. Windlight: Nacon’s Morning.

Blithe

At the landing point you are greeted with gorgeous greenery and a few pathways to choose from. There is even a dance “ball” on the tree ahead!

The aptly named, spectacularly decorated region is created by the fabulous Harlow Heslop and consists of two sims filled to the brim with fantastic scenery, walking trails, beaches and all kinds of sweet and romantic spots to spend time with friends and loved ones. You will also find the ever popular Pixel Bean Coffeehouse 😀 !

One of many beach areas.

I spent around and hour exploring as much as I could and I can safely say there is something for everyone here.

A lake area with walking trail. A favourite of mine!

Party Time @ SL11B!

Another year older, Second Life is celebrating it’s 11th Birthday and there are eleven fantastic sims bursting with awesome things to do and see! After covering the celebrations for the 10th birthday last year, I was honoured to be allowed back for an early access press tour!

The event opened it’s doors to the public yesterday and I’m super excited to return and scope out more amazing exhibits for you, but here are some must-see landmark places I grabbed the goss’ on!

Although maybe lacking in quality due to quick snapping, these photos are raw, in-world shots and best viewed larger by clicking through.

SL11B Press Tour
Time Capsule with Welcome Area behind.

First up is the Time Capsule and Welcome Area just behind it. The Welcome area was designed by Donpatchy (donpatchy.dagostino), a long time builder for public spaces at SLB events. There is much to explore here and you have access to the Pod Tours and teleports to major locations!

The winning design for the SL11B time capsual will be placed where we’re all stood in the photo above, you can find out how to enter the contest at the SL11B Blog! Around this area, time capsule’s from previous years stand proud and it’s well worth exploring just for the history in each.
