For the enjoyment of all, we have a few basic rules.
First and foremost, be respectful of all people who have come to enjoy being here. Rudeness or harassment will not be tolerated.
Don't confuse the Adult setting to mean crude or rude behavior is permitted. We are adult but have some manners and class.
We are an Island for adult Humans who are surfing fans, explorers, social and friendly.
No tails, No wings, No Non Human Attachments of any kind. No weapons are permitted.
== The only exception to the Human rule is “SurfersBayDude” who is the island monkey who maintains Surfers Bay. Mermaids are permitted as there is a Underwater Mermaid cave located at the island ==
No spamming in group: please don’t use group to send spam messages. We will ban anyone spamming immediately.
Taking advantage of AFK members (jumping on poses and having sex with them) is NOT TOLERATED. Sexual relations on the island is only between consenting adults.
Use of objects on the water – Please only use surfboards on the surf waves and be considerate of others. Jet skis and boats should stay off the surf waves so everyone can enjoy the sim peacefully.
Please help to keep the sim as lag free as possible and do not not use more then 6.00 MB. You do this by removing as many scripted items and unneeded HUDs as possible.
Do not hover over AFK avatars and be respectful about taking pictures. Ask before you take or post pictures of others. De-rendering clothing of members and taking pictures of them is not acceptable and can be grounds for being banned.
If a couple is having sex have some class and don't spy and take pictures unless they have approved. Use common sense and just show respect.
This is a clothing optional resort (Nude or Summer/Swim Wear Only)
