I must say I need to credit 2 people for showing me this historical mat.1st Ryan C. for pointing it out to me and the owner. (who's name escapes me)I just feel since I'm still not yet a current mat head (but soon will be) I'm unworthy to be posting.Great piece though. The air plug is a hard rubber screw and reminds me of a 'Boston Whaler' bilge plug.Thanks Paul.Looking fwd to my Classic!

I spoke to a guy out on a longboard the other day. He'd recently bought a Surfoplane and hadn't had much luck so far. He was intrigued to feel the Neumatic and registered the much thinner material and 'under' inflation. I managed to reinforce the theory with a 90 degree bottom turn as he paddled out.http://www.jonmaydesign.com/graphics/otherPics/surfoPlanes.jpg
PS - the Surfoplane is still in production.
