While it may cold where you are, a cool surfer has shown up in your game in FarmVille this week, offering a taste of summer fun here in the middle of winter (of course, we'll all quickly learn that surfing in the middle of winter might not be the best idea). His appearance comes by way of a new goal series, with there being nine goals in all to complete within the next two weeks. Here's what to expect when completing these goals, as reported by FarmVille Freak.

Unfortunately, the XP rewards in these goals are disappointing, so it falls on the decorations or animals that you'll also receive to take up the slack. Sure, an XP Book is fine, but some of the farming tasks here will take quite some time to complete, unless you have enough plots across all of your farms to have 900 crops growing at the same time (it's definitely possible, but not 100% probable if you're a lower level player). Still, if you want to get your hands on these new and (for now) exclusive items, make sure to start on this goal series in your game before it's too late.
What do you think of these goals in FarmVille? Do you think the rewards are worth all of the extra farming we'll have to do to complete them? Sound off in the comments.
