Poid's new boards boast an incandescence that lights up the surfer and the wave in a shimmering light. The new range currently includes 10 unique graphic designs created by Poid using a real life photographic process combined with Second Life luminous colours including purple, yellow, red, orange and green.
All the surfboards are based on the new sculptie scripts from Heather Goodliffe and Sebastian Saramago. SurfWatch found that some boards reflected more light than others and visibility is very much related to 'draw distance' and partly to your graphics settings. We also felt that the phosphorescent boards unique visual effects did come at the expense of some performance, but to be fair we only found inconsistencies in the boards' maneuverability while stationary and paddling out and not whilst actually surfing.
Our favourite surfboards were the luminous green 'FoamRa', the red 'RipRa' and the lilac and blue 'BlissRa'. Poid's new psychedelic boards are available at her shop at Surf Camp on the PrimWorks sim.
