Today we’re celebrating the first anniversary of the surf at Ash Falls!
Straight out of the back of seven weeks continuous building at Erebos Harbor, Leaf and I found ourselves back home at Ash Falls suddenly with hours of free time and feeling a little lost.
As the Summer draws to a close and Fall sets in round Johnston Strait the team at OrcaLab have busy monitoring the Northern Resident groups as they passed through the area. We’ve just had the latest update from them, with some beautiful video shot by one of their Summer staff.
First of all, thankyou so much to literally every person who contributed a photo. This was one of the hardest things we’ve had to do and have been completely blown away by both the response and all the images people have taken time to enter. We know how much work goes into photo creation and we try to make that a little easier by putting just as much effort into our environments, for you.
We love, admire and respect all of the creativity and talent that we are so lucky to have within such an amazing group of people. Never stop doing what you do. You make everyones lives richer.

At [d.p], it’s fair to say we love what we do and we do what we love. We’re very appreciative and feel fortunate that alot of you enjoy things with us as we grow and develop together.
This week we managed to take some time out with our friends at SurfWatch and talk a while about how we got here and what’s in store for [d.p]. You can see the full interview on the SurfWatch Blog, including the short teaser below.
On 24th April, we officially opened the Ash Falls extension and we are so happy that you’ve been enjoying the new space!
Ash Falls has been home of dirty.pretty for a very long time; it’s been through various metamorphoses and taken lots of forms. In June ’17, Ash Falls was opened to the public and swiftly added to the photogenic location category in the Second Life Destination Guide. But whilst beautiful, we felt that Ash Falls hadn’t quite found its’ purpose in its’ newest form.
We are proud to share with you that our work to extend Ash Falls from a single homestead to a double homestead is now complete and we would love to invite you to visit, or re-visit, this much loved location on the grid.
Ash Falls is a collection of coastal islands, inspired by the rocky terrain, volcanic sands and rich green flora and fauna of the Pacific North West.
