Had a matt ride at shallows today! Now I'm hooked! S.C.U.M.M!!!!!! The water is beautiful and warm
Technique is purely up to the rider…..some like to paddle their mats into a wave like they do with a board, where as I like to kick into my waves..
Keep your weight forward and onto your mat
as you feel your mat taking off, slip your body forward with one hand on the deck and the other on the rail
by keeping your inside hand palm down , you can lift and squeeze your outside rail to help control your direction, with your inside leg and flipper acting as a stabilizing rudder.
once on the fly you can release the outside rail, keeping your head down and body weight forward
Lift both flippers up and feel the slingshot effect of having no drag and just pure frictionless slide…why keep your hands flat on the deck? instead of gipping the front ‘body board style’?
Mats are soft and pliable , so its a natural to ‘pull ‘ onto the front causing the mat to stall and lose speed , so its no different to pushing forward on your deck when riding a kneeboard or footboard…keeping your weight forward will always help with forward propulsion and speed.

After Saturdays miserable weather it was great to wake up to some sun shine and off shore winds last Sunday. Paul and myself ventured down south and scored some fun waves for a hour on the beach before being over run by a dozen foot boarders…a quick breaky and then a slide on a empty reef break…
