How to compete in the SLSA competitions
Competitions are FREE to enter.
To compete you need to:
1. Belong to the SL Surfing Association group (free to join)
2. Be registered as a member of the SLSA forum (  After you register, wait for activation of your account, which due to a number of bots registered before, is done manually by one of the SLSA Directors or forum moderators, after they confirm that you're a real avatar and belong to the SL Surfing Association group in SL. The activation shouldn't take more than 24hours.
3. Watch for SLSA group notices and check the SLSA forum ( for news and updates. Every significant announcement is done via group notice in-world, so no worries you'll miss something.
4. After the registration is open (it's always on a week before the competition, on Sunday at 12 noon SLT) register at the SLSA forum by following the link posted in the group notice. And replying to the Sign up post in the forum.
5. Before the competition the heat draws will be announced, and you will receive a competition pack with colour rashguards and boardies/kinis and important notecards to read (must read!) in it.
6. At the competition you need to use the type of surfboard that was announced as required for the competition.
The Comp:
1 you will be assigned to a heat with about 4 or 5 other surfers, and you will be assigned a rashguard color to wear.
2 you will get to surf 3 waves, and 3 judges give you a score out of 10 for each wave.
3 your best two wave scores are added together to give your heat score.
4 if you come first or second in your heat you will advance to the next stage of competition.
5 enjoy the fun and camaraderie on the waves and especially the party wave at the end of your heat (all surfers join in)
Prizes for the main event include a trophy board and Lindens for the top 12 finishers.

At all times the SLSA directors are at your service. Contact any director if you have any questions. :)

See you on the waves!

The step into liquid theme conceived by Sally LaSalle is perfect fit for SLB9 Exhibit. The "Hyper Wave" features a green board elevator that takes you into the surfing sphere where a surfboard rezzes to ride. SLSA members provided all the photos plus all teams that ever competed in SLSA are featured as well. Special thanks to Sally and Mick and to members for contributing and making this happen!

If you have the time, hang around the exhibit to greet people new to surfing in SL who might have questions.

Also join in the celebration of International Surf Day

Welcome Webby Merlin! Virtual Highway

Submitted by Marianna Monentes

I have incredible news, Webby Merlin of Mated for Life and the Sugar
Shack product line is here in Virtual Highway and has just finished
filling her vending sign with “Mated for Life” Na'vi avatar line.  You
will find everything you need to create a complete realistic Avatar
with awesome details all using an ingenious menu system which allows
you to change the colors of your beads, ties, skin etc all with one
click.  When you purchase your Na'vi avatar from Webby you not only
have a quality avatar you have reassurance from Webby herself to help
you achieve that “look” you are after.

Due to be released this weekend, Webby will be adding the Sugar Shack
line, the private “personal attachments” every human needs to be
anatomically “complete”. All these items are HUD driven and allow you
to MOD and COPY so that you can have complete control over your
personal look.
In cooperation with Tiffany Magic, maker of fine beds, rugs, loungers
and other animated furniture, Webby has developed the Sugar Shack
men's “package” to adjust in position automatically with changes of
animations in the MLP beds.
“What's next, Webby?'
“Well I can see a need for some improved hands and feet, how about my
Finishing Touch Nails (hud driven fingernails with gemstone rings and
100 nail designs in one kit) and my semi-famous “Sandalfoot” line of
beachy footwear (includes the feet – color and texture changing as
“Why does everything change colors, textures etc.?”
“Stems from my perpetual lack of decision making abilities. And short
term memory loss. What?”

Kantbe Serious: Fun Fact

The Beach Boys have often been called "America's Band", and Allmusic has stated that "the band's unerring ability... made them America's first, best rock band.” The group has had 36 US Top 40 hits (the most by an American rock band) and 56 “Hot 100” hits, including four number-one singles. “Rolling Stone” magazine listed The Beach Boys at number 12 on their 2004 list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time," the highest ranking for an American rock band.
