Hey it's about time we have another contest isn't it?
Here we have an official bit of Penetrator's loot, an S3 t-shirt, in the XL babydoll size & style. This shirt has shrank a little bit, and is probably equivalent to a ladies small size. It has never been worn and is in like new condition. Did I mention it is small? And cut for the ladies? Good luck!
Click here to enter! Open to SG101 members only.
Hey band members! If you have something you'd like to give away as an SG101 contest, please contact Brian. Thanks!
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2013 MP3 Compilation! Our 9th one! Just like before, this is a way for 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:
I have created an Official 2013 MP3 Compilation 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 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012.
The latest release from Australia’s favourite surf guitarist and member of the legendary Atlantics – Martin Cilia.
Inspired by a 2012 trip to Hawaii and California (the Hawaiians call it “Kaleponi”) and a chance meeting with surf guitar god Dick Dale, “Going To Kaleponi” has Martin and his classic guitar collection in full flight.
You’ll hear the sounds of cool breezes in palm trees, rolling ocean surf, skateboards on Santa Monica boulevard and many more.
Available now on iTunes and through www.martincilia.com. Listen to some of the tracks here: www.martincilia.com.
