Well someone has to feed the animals!
Allan Deadman ( below ) , is the owner of this harem of goats as well as the local Ray White Real Estate Agent. A true Farmer at heart, he is also not a bad knee boarder when not working on the farm or selling properties.
After dragging Neal away from his Goat feeding duties, we slipped around the corner to Gilligans for a look and was surprised there was only 3 guys out surfing with and another 2 joining us at the lookout ….and they were all knee boarders!Phil
With the World Kneeboard titles kicking off the following week in Kiama , there was a few knee men floating around. Jake below and Phil above had travelled from South Australia for the comp and were pretty stoked to get clean, offshore and uncrowded waves , which is something they don’t normally experience back home….even got Jake onto a mat for one wave!Jake
Pommie ( James Anderson ) , Irish ( Paul Wright ) and MyGod ( Mark McCloud), enjoyed some waves early in the morning with us and I was able to catch up for afternoon surf the following day.

Neal and I had a epic 4 hour session, and with the incoming tide the sets just kept on pushing thru with some nice long 3 foot sets winding down the line.
With all the knee men heading in search of better waves? we basically surfed the last 2 hours to ourselves and probably one of the best sessions I have enjoyed for pure mat riding fun and crossovers!

We swapped mats and camera man roles, so in these frame grabs , I am riding Neal’s 4GF Tracker whilst Neal is riding my Krypt and wearing the camera helmet.
What's the Difference?
Not a lot really, Neal found the Krypt to be a faster on the wall, I felt I was laying higher out of the water as the 4GF’s have rail profile that is thicker than the Krypt’s. I had to let air out of Neal’s mat and he put more in mine, so it all comes down to the rider and his personal choice. Watch the video below and you can see both of us keep our hands back from the nose of the mat when riding, its most important to keep that air to the front of the mat . You dont want to have not enough inflation either, not enough will lead to cavitation in the tail, which causes drag, so its always only a few breathes between having the perfect inflation!
