Join in on exciting events around Risa to earn Lohlunat Favors that can be traded in for cool gear like swimwear or powerboards! Come enjoy your stay on Risa with these exciting additions this summer!
To pick up Risian Duty Officers, head to the promenade, go upstairs, and take the bridge over to the far side. You’ll find a Risian officer there who can help you with recruitment. In exchange for Lohlunat favors, you can requisition the available Risian officers – but, you must show your understanding of Risian ideals before you can get them to join your crew! To requisition rare (blue) Risian Duty Officers, you must complete any three accolades on Risa, whether from watching a fireworks show, buzzing over the landscape in a floater, or doing other activities around the island. To requisition very rare (purple) Risian Duty Officers, you must complete the Master Relaxer accolade, which means you have to dedicate yourself to finding every hidden spot and participating in every activity!

There's no better way to test out your new powerboard than by racing the waves! Risians have set up a race course along the water to test the mettle of any would-be surfers. Race against your fellow Captains around the island; be to earn the prized Tropical tags. Be sure to stay within the confines of the race, otherwise you might be booted out! Races are held every 30 minutes. You can buy or rent powerboards to take part and race ahead of the competition.
Risians have been been tirelessly working on domesticating their prized wildlife. After perfecting the art of raising Risian Tropical Birds, everyone is excited to tame their very own Feather Monkey! These monkeys come in multiple breeds and colors. Use Tropical Tags won from the powerboard race to get a new Feather Monkey pet.
If you missed last year's summer event, fear not Captains! You can still get Risian eggs and Tropical birds!
Risa's beaches are the prime spot to build sand sculptures. All along the beach are great places to sit down, grab some sand, and start building! A local arenologist - a specialist in sand - over in the promenade can help you take part in building your very own sand castle! Just look for some small pails and shovels set out in the sand - claim a location next to one and build your sculpture there. With enough practice, you'll go from making small little castles to elaborate sculptures. These are are a great way to express your artistic side and earn Lohlunat Favors. Once per hour, Risian event coordinators will host a special event, during which you'll earn bonus rewards for making a sand sculpture. Show off your sculptures all along the water front to everyone. Just remember, be careful of any pesky monkeys who might seek to ruin your sculpture!
Enjoy and Blessed Lohlunat!
