Cloudbreak is an Indonesian inspired surfer’s paradise spread across a full region and a homestead, with long stretches of natural beaches. It also includes a hidden cave, a stunning waterfall, as well as a full explorable ravine in a dense jungle landscape. The whole region is looked over by Buddha, who sits tall and proud on an island in the sea, accessible by a wooden boardwalk from the beach.
Cloudbreak opened on July 19th, 2018, has a moderate sim rating and is machinima friendly, so an ideal place for shooting videos. There are also four rental properties at Cloudbreak, so if you’re looking to rent a little piece of heaven in Second Life, check out their rental info.
I spoke to one of the dirty.pretty team members before exploring and she sent me some notes about Cloudbreak which I thought I would share with you all:
In the landing zone, make sure you look up! We have sky hammocks suspended on ropes over the space between our two mountains.
At the end of the lines suspending the sky hammocks there’s a small wooden platform, from this platform there is a useable zipline which goes across the ravine to another platform beyond one of our waterfalls.
She told me where the hidden cave is and I showed it in my video but I am not going to share the details here so you guys can discover it yourself. I don’t want to ruin the surprise!
Cloudbreak has two music venues – The Sand Bar (the small wooden building on the central island) and Air (the large boat house on the beach with the terrace and the boat workshop in one side). Events are organised sporadically by the sim owner.
We have one of the largest surfable wave runs in Second Life, and we have a large selection of surf board rezzers on the Cloudreef beach. The sim owner & Cloudbreak are bronze level sponsors of the Second Life Surfing Association’s 2018 Season 2 surfing competition, which is well under way now.
I’m certain you’ll find the bath house on the top of the cliff edge, it’s the overgrown and flooded Moroccan style building on the edge of the rock ledge above the beach. It’s probably one of the more photogenic spots on sim!
Cloudbreak utilises some of the most recent WL features implemented by LL – we have a custom daylight cycle which Leaf created from a collection of her custom created WLs so the environment changes subtly from sunrise through day, night, and back again over a 4 to 6 hour period.
Beware the sim boundaries, I’d guess about a quarter to a third of what you see has been built off-sim, including the waterfall from the top of the mountain at the Landing Zone right down the side of the sim edge!
