Virtuoso Mat Riding

"I just had a good long look at this photo of Greeno. At first it doesn't jump out at all, so minimalist you don't even notice, but he's displacing almost ZERO water. There's about as much spray as a pelican's wake coming off the inside rail, and only just slightly more from the outside corner, and I believe that's because he has his weight on his left leg. Just when you think you're getting the hang of this mat surfing deal... back to the drawing board. I've got so much to learn..."

I'm with you! I study these photos for hours looking at wakes and weight placement. Even on a small beautiful wave like this there are things to learn!
