As I approached the water, I ran into Ian Zamora carrying his 4GF and his fins. What's this? Matting at Malibu? And the lifeguards didn't say anything? WTF? As I sat on my surfboard getting more and more pissed at the horrible conditions, I started thinking I should just go to the car and get my mat. The next thing I knew, Ian had grabbed another mat and fins for a friend. Then there were two mats in the water! Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I wasn't catching anything on a board. Ian and Jonny were the only people out there smiling. Right! I'm getting my mat!
Of course, as soon as the lifeguard spied three mats on the sand, he started lecturing. It was something to the effect of him only allowing one mat at a time. Ian had to leave. Jonny was getting out anyway. That left me.
So what happened? The boss came and I was unceremoniously told to come out of the water. (Sigh) It's because I'm black, isn't it? LOL! Just kidding. I got back on my board.
This was the first time I'd ever seen more than one mat in the water. I've seen Pranaglider in the water while I was surfing. That was one. Today there were two mats in the water. I tried to make it three. Oh well.
