Site News
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2008 MP3 Compilation! Our 4th one! Just like before, this is a way for all members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
  1. You must be a member of this website to submit an mp3.
  2. You may submit only 1 mp3.
  3. The mp3 you submit must not have appeared on any "official" release before. Likewise, please don't submit anything that is destined for an official release in the future.
  4. The mp3 must be 8 MB in size or less.
  5. There is a good chance the comp will end up on Archive.org. Therefore, you must agree to their Creative Commons (Attribution, Non-Commercial, No-Derivatives) License for your mp3.
  6. The deadline for submitting an mp3 is Friday, December 19th, 2008.
I have created an Official 2008 MP3 Comp Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!

Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007.

Site News
Check it out! Please visit our podcast page and download our second episode. Only a year in the making!

Episode two features a new SG101 theme song written by our own WR and performed by Ferenc, DannySnyder and TonyBologna! In addition, we have an interview with Ferenc!

This episode was conceived and produced by DannySnyder and his wife Lady Reverb (Adrienne). A special thanks to Adrienne for lending her wonderful voice and song selection to this podcast!

There were a few technical problems with the sound quality, especially on the interview, but we hope to have these worked out for future episodes.

A longer version of the interview with Ferenc may be posted later.

Please share this with your friends and family!

Enjoy!

The server move is complete. Hopefully you have found us by now and I have most everything unpacked and put in the proper place.

I also upgraded the site software. You should see a few small differences around here.

And finally, the Member Map module is active now for registered users.

We're Moving!

Submitted by Brian on February 14, 2008.
Site News
This site has been around for nearly 4 years now. The first 2 years it was just a static HTML site, mainly meant to host photos from all the surf shows my wife and I had went to. Then, nearly 2 years ago, I loaded up some interactive software and the site as you know it was born. We have grown a lot in those 2 years, and I have big plans for the future. So I have decided to move this site to a dedicated server, where we will have much more room for growth and experimentation.

Never having done this before, I'm not sure how it is all going to play out. We will still be known as surfguitar101.com, but the domain name must be moved to the new server. That may mean a day or two of disruption. There may also be a period where people in one part of the world are posting on the old server, while others have already been moved to the new server. I'm going to try to minimize that, but it may happen that a few posts get lost in the shuffle. When will this happen? Sometime in the next 7-14 days I think.

I'm really looking forward to having more space, bandwidth, and potential for future growth. Thanks again for your support!
