Surfing with Lissa

So this week I've been a bit sick with a sinus infection that just won't go away. Not one to be stuck in the house drinking hot tea and with my head over a steaming bowl of foul smelling stuff, I struck out in search of beaches where the waves pound so when I feel better, I can get out and get wet!


Illuka Beach is a nice quiet beach with tons of areas hidden away to explore inbetween sets. Wildlife here seemed to follow me around everywhere...maybe it was the bag of fruit I was carrying? Pipes running unsynced and loaner boards available near the water would make this a sweet surf spot! Be sure to keep an eye on the sharks and wildlife on the shore. The monkeys and kangaroos look a bit shady!

Next stop finds me in Ocean Shores where I spent some time collecting sea shells and watching the massive waves crash into the shore. Small waterfalls and surrounded by lush green mountains, all added to a peaceful time and after a short nap (darn sinus medicine!), I made sure to jot this spot down as a place to return to when I can rip it up! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ocean%20Shores/12/163/21

Last stop is Kauai...ok so the picture shows I went shopping at Splendeurs! A girl can shop while she is sick too ya know! I must be prepared for when I can come back here and shred the Cortes wave that is rolling thru the bay. If you see V, um, don't tell him you saw me here ripping up receipts. What he doesn't know won't make him hide his wallet! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Kauai/108/84/23

Until next time Surf Party Surf or was that Surf Shop Surf? I forget! And if you wanna do some exploring on your own, be sure to check out the SurfWatch Wave Report at: http://swwavereport.blogspot.com/ And if you find a great new spot, let us know!

Two Seats will be open for the March 1st SLSA Board of Directors elections. Applications must be submitted between February 9th and February 16th. Director Eligibility is outlined in the SLSA constitution Section II.B and is quoted below.

If you wish to stand as a director, please create a note-card in-world, stating:
- your name,
- your willingness and ability to serve a full term,
- any affiliations of team, product or sim ownership,
- a paragraph or two outlining your background, and your vision for the SLSA.

Send the note-card to all of the current sitting directors; Kantbe Thursday, CoolKat Delicioso, Robbin Ember, GiavannaMarie Melody and Abel Halderman. You have until Midnight SL time on February 16th to submit.

Directors who's term is up: Kantbe Thursday and Abel Halderman.

From Section II.B of the SLSA Constitution:

Please read the following relevant extract from our Constitution regarding the application requirements and process:

2.2. SLSA Director Eligibility

Any individual who is a current member of SLSA and who is an eligible voter is eligible to hold office as a Director of the SLSA Board, within the following rule(s):

2.2.1. Not more than two (2) representatives from

2.2.1.1 the same surf team (as defined in section 1.5.8 )

2.2.1.2 the same surf product vendor company (product developers, not affiliate sellers)

2.2.1.3 the same surf sim(s) ownership group (sim owners, not sim renters) shall be Directors of the SLSA Board at any single time.

Candidates will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis for this election condition. (e.g Continuing Director A is Surf Team X, Candidate B and Candidate C are also Surf Team X, then Candidate B would be accepted as a nominee if their application was received first, Candidate C’s nomination would not be accepted)


2.2.1.4 A current SLSA member who is not an eligible voter may petition the board for the privilege of running for a Director seat. Their petition must state why their candidacy would be a benefit to the SLSA. If the board unanimously agrees that it is in the best interest of the SLSA the eligible voter requirement may be waived. This will be on a case-by-case basis and does not imply an endorsement of the particular candidate.

2.2.2. General Election Candidates shall apply in writing to all members of the standing board of directors (via note-card, IM’s are not admissible) not more than 21 days and not less than 14 days prior to an election. Candidate Applications must state their willingness and ability to serve their full 6 month term and must also state any team, product or Sim affiliations as defined in 2.2.1.1 through 2.2.1.3.

Mari's Mailbag: New Beginnings

submitted by Marianna Monentes

Well he saw his shadow lol...early spring. Hey do we have a SL groundhog..NOoo not me I mean did the SL groundhog see its transparent shadow?? Will we all have an early spring in SL?? I think so. Feel it in the air already. Everyone is gearing up to what I feel will be an excellent surf season. During the winter some teams ended while new teams forming, Boracay being one of those that ended. Even though it brought those tears I know its best for the team to continue where there is challenge for them. So always look for the challenges and strive through the lag and doubt and strive even harder.

There is never a final in ending to me I don't see it like that...I always see that there will be a new begining soon...is that a half full cup? YOU BETCHA!!
