six months in surf


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. For all the years I’ve known Leaf I never knew she surfed, it never came up before, until one day in March she turned round to me and declared we’d done enough standing around and that she was taking me surfing. I don’t remember where we ended up that first day; I know we went to North Shore, to Kanaloa, to Bundy and to many other beaches.

From the first moment I experienced it I have loved the thoughts unsaid and the things you speak in those few soulful moments when you get off a wave when you’re out surfing with someone, when you head back towards shore and you’re just watching the water together. One of those things you say between waves that day was ‘we need our own wave run‘.

Photography Contest Results

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.

Soul Surfing

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.
