Two of our friends from the Second Life Surf Community – Mick Lunasea and Revlon Benoir put together a Surf Festival last year that was very enjoyable and successful. These two are at it again and are preparing for an even bigger and better event! The Festival officially starts on Saturday, June 19 and will run until the 27th. During this time, there will be contests, parties, events, etc…all focusing on the Second Life Surf Community. Whether you are currently a surfer in SL or have never tried or maybe weren’t even aware that it exists, the Festival should offer a fun time! Below, I have included the Festival Schedule with links to SLURLs for various events. Be sure to note that there is a Photo Contest with cash prizes…as well as a few other competitions and fun!! Hope to see you there!!!
