Riding Surf Mats
Surfing mats are fun.
Surfing mats in a really good , down the line, reef or point break , is extremely FUN.
Surfing mats and finding fourth gear is the true Nirvana that every mat rider strives for
attaining high speed slides and drifts, figure 8 crossovers and flat out down the line speed is what true mat riding is all about , transforming the humble air mattress into a speeding bullet and the inner sanctum of fourth gear and beyond.

After a very busy year down here, a two week vacation to Hawaii, work and family commitments , I finally enjoyed some of the best mat waves for 2016 , and as usual at the world's premier mat wave, Gilligans Island.
Going right is not the normal option, but it wasn't hard to split and share the peak with Paul....ZOOM.
