I was totally stoked out of my gourd Saturday!
Prono was a complete success, by my own standards, but everybody else there seemed to be having a brilliant time also and ALL of them believed it to be a success and were wondering when the next one was going to be.
From the mat perspective, I got almost everyone there to ride a 4GF - even for just 2 waves! I got a few of the established mat riders to try the Lotus7, and all agreed that it was the best 4GF we had ridden!
It's funny though, we all had a blast and everyone tried everything there but Paipos and handplanes were a bigger hit than mats. I guess its hard to get into riding mats so quickly, since they are totally different to the hard shapes.
Either way, it all reminded me why I ride and love mats!
I'll send you some photos. These are just from Grant Newby's camera.
