Monkey Cove Announcement!

submitted by Syx Toshi

Monkey cove has just added a small retail area that will be focused on surf related products. This will be a small area that will fit into the existing surroundings and not interfere with the natural beauty or waves of Monkey Cove.

Our hope is that this will only enhance your experience here at Monkey cove.  Mahalo!

nAvitar Benefit Concert

submitted by Lia Chastity (Liyanin Aytanin, Alimatan Tsahik)

"Eywa ngahu"

Greetings all, I have some interesting news. Marianna Monentes is now the proud owner of nAvitar. This sim is a role play sim inspired by the movie, Avatar. The sim's timeline takes place roughly 20 years before the movie. There are many great role players who enjoy the atmosphere and sheer beauty of the sim. There are three Na'vi clans who reside in different areas of Pandora. The sim features the Alimatan Clan.  Their home is Hometree. The Leaders of this clan are Neyteri Onyett who is the leader or Olo'Eyktan, and Lia Chastity the spiritual leader or Tsahik. We have the Pali Clan which resides on the plains. The Leader is Shain Bowdit, the Olo'Eyktan, and Sophie Stuer, his Tsahik. There is also the Tahni Clan which reside high in the Hallelujah mountains. The leader is NING Westland and his Tsahik Neyteri Aurotharius. Yes, we do have the Pra which includes an in-depth Avatar program. The Leader is Kaeli Borgin and her Second in Command is Bruizer Yakubu. Spec-Ops is the military presence leading the fearless marines into the forests of Pandora. The Colonel is Raoul Viper and his Second in Command, Lieutenant Smoke Fang. The sim has a large marketplace for the purchase of excellent clothing and items from various vendors across Second Life who also appreciate the ideas behind the movie. We encourage you to stop by and pay us all a visit, and maybe even join the role play.

We do have a very special event coming up on Saturday, September 25, at 12 PM SLT. We will be featuring Tauri Tigerpaw Live. She will be accompanied by Lia Chastity and Kaeli Borgin on stage with her. This Event is one of many we like to hold as a special Out Of Character day. We try to hold these once a month.  Come join us for this very special event!

Kantbe Serious: Doesn't a town meeting need a town?

submitted by Kantbe Thursday

I could be all wrong, but can you have a town meeting when there isn't a town? Apparently the Second Life Surfing Association (SLSA) Directors think you can. This coming Friday, September 24, at 1:PM SLT, SLSA Directors will be on the beach at Archipelago to answer any SLSA related questions and talk about anything SLSA related you want to discuss.

This will be their first town meeting in a while, and if it's received well, they plan on more at different times to better suit the inworld schedule of SLSA members.

If you've got a burning question, suggestions, or just want to see what an SLSA Director looks like, drop by Archipelago this Friday at 1:PM SLT.

7 Wonders of the SL Surfing World

Second Life (SL) surfing has some amazing creations.  SurfWatch is compiling a list of the 7 Wonders of the SL Surfing World.  These would be currently in existance in SL, for example, our first on the list is the current Second Life Surfing Association (SLSA) Hall of Fame (HoF):

These would be not just locations, but any SL surfing creation of any kind that should be commemorated.  We'd like to add the SLSA itself which as an SL organization has endured and withstands the inevitable struggles, the team of Heather Goodliffe and Sebastian Saramago as the creators of SL surfing with their surfable waves and creations, as well as the Surf Heaven sky location at Tai which displays over 500 surfboards.  We're looking for more amazing SL surfing wonders to add to the list!  Let us know what you consider to be one of the 7 Wonders of the SL Surfing World!

Saying Goodbye...

Kantbe Serious: Salsa the Party Animal?

submitted by Kantbe Thursday

What's this? Reports of Salsa Waverider being a party animal? Alias, bitten by the surfer bug, it seems true; partying is now in her blood. Spotted recently at a show hosted by bullet Admiral at Nancy Blake's Pub next to Bundoran Reef in West of Ireland, Salsa was out dancing and making new friends.
When asked why Salsa wasn't busy working on SLSA fund raising for Archipelago, she explained that she had just finished sending out thank you IM's for all the wonderful donations when she received an invitation from Bullet Admiral to come to the party. Being all about parties, how could Salsa refuse? Besides, she said that dancing helps her keep her trim, svelte figure.

Looks like Surf Rang may have a little competition for Salsa's attentions. Gotta watch those fox, clever little guys. Already giving Salsa sexy clothes...

International Surf Party a Hit!

submitted by Kantbe Thursday

There was a great turn out at the International Surfing Party held at Tsunami on Sunday September 19th. Folks came from around the globe as evidenced by Analog Jung's fine example of showing off his baton twirling skills from when he was a collage cheerleader.

DJ Dan (001000000101110 Numbanumba) out did himself with an international selection, including such greats as Flogging Molly's immortal surfing song "Devil's Dance Floor".

Since our Aussie friends had been surfing (or partying ) hard the previous evening, their absence was noted. However, as a tribute, the barbie was fired up. No shrimp were on hand, so attendees foraged for burgers and dogs. For some unexplained reason, when the call went out for dogs to grill, Surf Rang and Bandit suddenly disappeared. Must be an Aussie thing.

A wonderful time was had by all and there's already talk of having another! Keep your eye's peeled on SurfWatch. We know ya'll don't want to miss a party opportunity!

Special thanks to Colleen Brennan for inspiration and to Abel Halderman and Analog Jung for helping put it all together.
