"It's always fun having customers input on things," said Radical. "And Reaction is keen to promote original Second Life design work and this is a way for us to get to know new designers. I know for a fact that I'd be stoked if I was able to design and have a popular board sold by Rip Curl, Lost, or Rusty for example."
However, residents that want to try their hand at designing a new Reaction board have just a couple more days left to get in on the action. Designers must submit a simple visual of their design, with full permissions, to Radical Twang by October 1st. The competition rules are simple: a design visual is all that's required to enter, the visual must be the original design of the individual submitting it, plus designers must agree that by submitting their design they are turning the ownership of the design concept over to Reaction.
In addition to seeing their design on a Reaction 'Quad Wing' surfboard for sale via Reaction's retail sales channels, the winner will receive a L$5,000 Reaction gift card, the next 10 releases free in advance of release and a free surfboard with their own design on it. More information is available at Reaction's flagship store.
