Death and Rebirth in Surfing Sims
submitted by Kantbe Thursday
Kinda hard to be humorous and tongue in cheek about losing another surfing sim, especially one that has been one of my favorite little hang-outs. It may be that not many of you went to Kekoa & Rodazz's surfin beyooootch, but it's been retired recently. It was full of all sorts of little hidden and not so hidden fun things to do. My "byline" picture with the giraffe came from there.
It was a fun little place to explore and have a good time. Tanya and I had planned to go back for another round of kung fu fighting to see who would win this time. Personally, I'll miss it.
But, as some go, new ones crop up, and even sometimes, if we're lucky, old ones come back. If you've not seen it, The Deck is back with the New Vibes Beach. Yes, VW Sands and Lissa Pinion are back with a surfing beach. It's also the new headquarters location for SurfWatch.
If you're having trouble keeping up with what's where, what's still around, and who's on first base, try to keep tabs with the SurfWatch Wave Reports site. Tauri has also just placed some multi-point teleporters based upon this same surfing sim list at a few locations around SL, the SW Headquarters, The SurfWatch Shop, and at Archipelago by the entrance to the Hall of Fame building.
This list is difficult to keep current. If you can, please help us out by letting us know of new surfing sims you've discovered and ones that are no longer available. If you spot something, just holler at one of the Surf Watch staff so we can try to keep things current.
