Surf Jam 15

reprinted by permission of VW Sands

Surf Jam 15 is scheduled to be held Saturday, March 6, 2010.

Aloha Vibers and welcome to Surf-Jam! This is the 15th Surf-Jam and just like always................

The VSA Surf-Jam is a surf contest held once per month on the Mori Pwani estate for Vibrations members only. This SJ event will be run on Fluffy waves and on retail, NO *MOD surfboards. Old scripts, new scripts, SSI, HP, Action whatever. * The whole MOD boards issue notwithstanding, in THIS SJ we surf with NO MOD surfboards.

SJ 15 will be held on Tuli Bahari. The spectator stands will be on Mori Pwani. We will be riding Pipeline waves and a fluff in the seam. Watch out for the reef in the first pipe transition! Set is up and running 24/7 for practise although I may be tweaking it to make it a little tougher ;-)

*NEW RIDERS

Please be in the stands and in your assigned rashie color 10 minutes before your heat. When the heat is called you will meet the Beach Marshall on the beach. The beach Marshal will release you to the bouy. Once at the buoy, please stay lined up in the order on your heat card and listen to the Marshal! DO NOT take off without the buoy marshall sending you :-)

As with all surfing contests we ask that you remove any scripted attachments including hugs, smiles, animation over-riders, bling and any/all other lag-inducing stuff BEFORE entering the sim. I know this is redundant but we have some new riders in the water today so please help your fellow riders get stripped ;-)

As always, the pre-lims will consist of three (3) waves per rider, semis of three (3) waves per rider and the final heat will allow four (4) waves per rider. Scoring as always, 0.00 - 10.00 - best 2 waves used for scoring and total average of all judges for final score.

Contest starts at 12 AM SLT (NOON) and we ask that ALL riders TP to the stands. Heats will be called down to the Beach Marshalls tent for check-in BEFORE being allowed to paddle out.

Mori Pwani is on an access list today. If you cannot get onto the sim please IM the event coordinator ( VW Sands ) as soon as possible and we´ll get ya dialed ;-)

Have fun at Surf-Jam!!!!!

For more information, contact VW Sands.

Lost Lovers Island

Lost Lovers Island located at 178, 89, 24 started as a homestead sim for surfing, dancing at the Tsunami Club and romance with 30 meter pipeline waves. We then moved and got a full sim located near the sims of Isla Del Amor, Mar del Amor and Voom's Extasy and got Epic Waves. We recreated the same experience that was available at the first sim.






We stream commercial free Rock and Roll 24 hours a day. We have contests daily at 4 PM SLT except Saturday. Sundays we also have a live Performer at 4 -5 PM SLT.









We offer free surfboards, windsurfers and jetskis. We have a two person submarine rezzer out by the lighthouse and a helocopter rezzer by the fountain. We also have many romantic grottos and kissing trees. For games we have Greedy Greedy and Pool.








We have 90 meter across Epic waves, the run is 100 meters long.  We offer some of the finest surfing and rock and roll in Second Life (SL) to go with so many activities for fun and romance. Guests are always welcome! Come enjoy Lost Lovers Island and all it has to offer.  Contact Jasher Faith for more information on Lost Lovers Island.

Mari's Mailbag - Team Commitment


When thinking about being on a team, putting your heart into it is key. We all have busy schedules, and that's understandable. It's important, though, to be "there" when you are online when you join a team. The practice you do will make the difference when you compete which is true in any endeavor. Your team will excel immensely if your heart is into it. You, too, will find you love it even more as you learn new trix. I know for me, the more I learned, the more I loved it...couldn't wait to perfect each new trick taught to me. Most teams fail when surfers don't follow through. If you sign up, you are making a commitment . So, before you do, think about your schedule and also think about actually competing. It's one thing to be on a team and just hang out.  It's quite another to actually compete. The feeling one gets when the marshall says take the next wave - what an adrenaline rush. Even though some think of this as "just" a game, I will tell you that to me... that is as real as it gets.
