Team Profile: Vibrations
submitted by Kantbe Thursday
Time to blow the dust off your old Beach Boy LPs, 45's, and MP3's to get in the right mood for the team profile for SLSA competition surfing team, Vibrations.
To force VW into taking the time to fill out this profile, Lissa withheld from VW only what Lissa can… his beer and pizza.
Please enjoy this 2nd in the Surfwatch series of SLSA competition team profiles:
Team Name: Vibrations
Year Founded: 2007
Founder(s): VW Sands
Owner/Captain: Buffy Munroe
Co-Captains: Quench Spotter
Current Team Standing: Ummm.....
Where did the team name come from:
Vibrations was born from our group "The Vibrations Surf Alliance"
Why was this team started:
I started the team as a way for our somewhat more "serious" *cough* riders to compete together at the SLSA comps but more importantly to have fun collectively.
Pertinent history/team highlights:
Hmmmm....Oh! We did manage to scrape out a championship once!
How does this team train and how often:
Train? You mean like practice and stuff? We.......surf alot and drink beer and eat pizza. Does that count?
What is the basic philosophy behind this team in terms of SL surfing (reality vs. gaming):
Our philosophy has everything to do about having fun. I personally like big, wide, sweeping bottom turns and quick cut-backs and off the lip moves (reality) but......it´s just a game ;-)
What board does this team use and why?
Our "Team" boards are SJA customs but most of us surf on whatever we have most fun riding.
What wave does this team prefer and why?
Ask each of us and get a different answer each time.
What associations does this team compete in?
We have competed in most all of the different series at one time or another.
Who are the top scoring riders on this team?
Hmmm, never really thought about THAT! Wicky and CK, Dix, Kimmy and Frank. I spose we all have good days now and again ;-)
