Overdue congrats….

Aloha! Been meaning to post this all week……CONGRATS to Colleen for her win at the SJ7 saturday past! Colleen was joned on the podium by Wilfrid DeCuir in 2nd spot and (YAY) Kim Henig in 3rd spot. WTG Kim!

Then, as if that were not enough back-patting, Bisharians RULED the final heat at the Surf City open on Sunday past with not less that 3 riders in the final! Crusader grabbed top spot and our very own Quench Spotter surfed AWESOME all day long and managed a P2! Yours truly picked up a third and another Viber, WickedV Carver came in 4th. 3 riders in the top 4 – WOOOOOT!!!

This weekends JJ Lanes Shortboard at Morant should be a BLAST too and at last count Bishara had not less than 4 riders entered to fight for the top step of the podium AND gain some precious team points! Come cheer us on or even better, join us in the water! Few spots left so register@ http://surfslsa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=347

Ripped off surfing products!

Hiya Bisharians!

Hey, take a moment and read ‘http://dumisworld.wordpress.com/2008/09/12/heather-goodliffe-responds-to-scripters-designers-creators-what-right/

Excellent comment from Heather Goodliffe about the work she and Seb have done for surfing in SL, and her fears about copied work and dishonest operators, in response to my own piece on the matter.  Let’s get behind the efforts to clean up the surfing product offerings in SL by purchasing only from designers who honour their agreements with creators like HG and Seb, and let’s encourage innovative new designers who clearly have not ripped off someone else’s designs.  I always find voting with your wallet works wonders 🙂

New SLSA Directors in our midst :)

Congratulations to our very own VW Sands and of course the very delectable Tauri Tigerpaw for being elected to the SLSA board.  I for one know that you will both be a huge benefit to the whole surfing community and especially the association’s organization and competition. The very overworked Sally LaSalle will have some great help on hand.

RL Sponsors

Having seen the initial success of the Surfline SL collaboration and PADI’s amazing work in SL, we are evaluating a similar partnership with ocean focused Real Life (RL) sponsors, either surfing product, windsurfing product, scuba product, fishing product or general ocean activities product suppliers that would be interested in sponsoring Bishara Resorts, and in return having the dominant product placements within our island group.  Furthermore, the sponsor would be able to place virtual versions of their real life products in Bishara and Second Life in general for showcasing / marketing as well as general purpose testing.  We are casting our lines out wide to find people who could help with high level introductions to companies that may fit this profile, and who would enhance the overall resort environment, look and enjoyment.  If you have anyone who could help sponsor or you believe your own company would be interested, please drop a notecard to VW Sands or Dumisani Ah at your earliest convenience.

Wimbi Island surfing – Are you good enough?

Hey Bisharians!  Ever tried traveling over from Majini to Wimbi lately?  Here’s a suggestion, travel over to the Mangrove beach area and rezz your board to launch from there.  Paddle over to the pipelines and have a surf… but what’s this? You’re bang into the rocks and get blocked?  Hehehe, o yes, this is phase one of the changes at Wimbi Island’s surf layout.  We’re making a surf adventure that is basically more like real life surfing.  Once complete, you will need to watch for various things in the wave run that could affect the way you surf or injure you too.  Wimbi has damage switched on for a reason 🙂

So for now, phase 1, we have only rezzed the blockers so that you can try and learn to develop that essential overview during a surf that you need to not get affected or caught by these natural dangers 🙂  Let us know your experiences – comment right here and lets hear what you wish improved!
