You just might need your sunscreen for the upcoming release, Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer, from Aspyr Media as you join six-time world champion surfer, Kelly Slater and eight other top pros as they travel to 13 of the most popular and recognizable surf spots in the world in search of the perfect wave.
Experience an all-out adrenaline rush as they drop down huge wave faces, pull into barreling tube rides and pull off hundreds of massive trick combinations and signature pro moves.
Players choose their own path as they interact with famous surfers, sponsors, magazines and photographers.
Exotic real world locations and events including full beach environments with real landmarks and hazards lend authenticity to the game.
Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer features ultra-realistic ocean conditions including barrels and tubes, and is the only surfing game to have populated waves, where gamers can ride alongside other surfers.
I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th last weekend.
As you guessed by now I took the week off since my release date is typically Friday.
From the emails I got I can tell you surely missed the update.
In this week's wallpaper I'm rising up from the depths of the ocean to catch a wave courtesy of Aspyr Media.
With Summer in full swing and several requests for this game already - there was no better time to create a desktop for Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer.
So, with the help of Aspyr Media, Activision and surfing the internet I was able to create this week's wallpaper.
I simply entitled this selection, "Surfs Up", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)
Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.
