SLSA 2011 Season 1 Tsunami Beach Competition

Tsunami Beach


For the first time in SLSA history, one of Luscious Starship’s LSD waves, the 80m Wilf’s Waimea will be used in a competition. To paraphrase from the LSD wave description:

The wave is 80m wide, 60m deep, and 15m high. The surfing surface is 3 prims and half of the surfing surface has a “hook” or “roof”. The open half of this wave is a straight up bi-directional launching pad. The gentle slope of the wave is suited for beginners and advanced surfers as well allowing maximum freedom of freestyle type surfboard trickery. Be careful not to get overconfident though because the side without the “hook” means you will swim/surf right over and past the wave if you just swim head on into the wave (just like RL!). The texture of this wave is intense and some have said “mean” looking. Like Waimea in Hawaii, this *IS* considered a BIG wave so its appearance reflects the power of its namesake. This wave is also low lag requiring only 2 scripts per wave.

A special thanks needs to go out to Colleen Brennan, VW Sands, and Luscious Starship for all of their hard work trying to come up with the best performing wave set up for this last competition series of this season. This should prove to be great experience for our new surfers, and an opportunity for a new challenge for the experienced old timers
