Surf

Aloha Bishara!

Just a quick update to get me warmed up and see if I can learn to post here 🙂

As you all know, Dumi and I have been working very hard as of late in an effort to give Bishara and the surrounding sims a much needed face-lift and the results speak for themselves! Queen is putting the finishing touches on the new art gallery, the new Surf Center is packed with great new boards, the new Bishara Dive Shop is stocked with some really great dive gear and the sim(s) is/are looking really great.

As I try to confine my madness to the surf program (although it has leaked out some) I would like to give you all a quick update on the post-Havoc situation. The day after the H4 server code was implemented, I shut down the Epic as it was (and still is) nearly unridable. Pipe waves seem to behave somewhat better and though far from trouble free, a triple set with fluffs is running on Majini. The isues with the big wave have been recognized and are being looked at by Sidewinder in close communication with Heather Goodliffe. It´s a wait and see if some fix is implemented with the 1.21 server code later next week.

In the meantime, all of the surfboard vendors have been updated to issue a “Havoc compatible” surfboards upon purchase so rest easy knowing that at least the boards have been updated to float properly, although the new camera scripts may take some getting used to.

Dumi was gracious enough to order 10 new Majini boards and the vendors are rezzed on the main beach! Some killer new desings, 5 “modern” boards and 5 Woodies all 100% Pure Juice! Textured by Schrotti, the new Majini boards are awesome.

Majini hosted the first post-havoc contest last saturday, the VSA Surf-Jam 3 and considering the somewhat quirky conditions caused in the H4 environment it was once again a blast!

We have a major Windsurfing comp coming up in less than 2 weeks which will be run on the Epic, for better or worse, lets hope that LL gets a fix implemented. Safe to say that when and if LL get the issues with the Epic sorted we will be back in full swing.

So, all in all – yes we have seen some problems with H4 but the collective, chilled-out attitude of our surfing community has allowed us to still have way to much fun. I really believe that once these initial issues are sorted, surfing in sl and in the Bishara estate in particular, will be better than ever. Hang in there, we are all working really hard to bring you the best surfing in sl 🙂

Sub you say?

A reference to sunken surfboards 🙂 but more importanly new underwater features! The diving areas are being worked on constantly in an effort to bring you not only awesome surfing but a diving environment to be remembered. Stay tuned for some awesome new features that will allow you to have as much fun under the surface as above it.

Mahalo,
