I asked Mark Thomson to give us SCUMM bags a few mat riding tips and Tomo has sent me this sequence by Toshie Cundith of MC Designs
Mark Thomson surfing the new MT5 Series IV surf mat
Run down the line and get the mat up to speed
Look up sight the lip line
Set a turn and aim for the lip
I call this a ZERO G move
Throw all your weight away and go weight less as you run along the lip
Hold the high line as long as you can until gravity grabs hold of you
Put your big monkey head down and power on down the ramp get the gravitational slingshot and accelerate up to Warp Factor 8
Once you sense your at maximum velocity
Lift your head and look up for the spot to hit the lip
Crank the turn on and experience multiple times your own body weight in G force
Aim for the pocket and hack into it...
Many thanks to Toshie Cundith for the sequence shots, pictured below riding her 4GF surfmat.
