Hello from the
This is my rabbit diesel, very economical to drive (40+ miles per gallon). The mat is a - that you made for me a few years ago (40+ miles per Gross), its the mat I ride most. I'm not to sure its any better than a stock , ( It's really hard for me to tell any difference) and the orange paint is to make it more when I loose it. I ride my XL when the waves are powerful enough to warrant, and the faster response is great. The fins are stock , there the only fins I wear (I'm a big guy) and I like the extra power for the dolphin kick during backed off takeoffs.
I have noticed a strange thing about mat waxing. After hot waxing with paraffin and surfboard wax the deck gets stiffer and the next 4 or five go outs are magic, then the feeling and control seam to lessen. I've tried this cycle twice and it really seams to work better with the fresh hot wax, and I don't think its just about traction. Just rubbing on surfboard wax doesn't seam to work. ( or maybe its old age? or are newly legalised weed?)So Donna, Polly and I are headed to southern California again next week, Santa Cruz, so much fun on the mats its hard to take the time for surf photos but I will try to get some good photos to you this year. Then its off to England to jam with the Stones. (just kidding) , Santa Barbara, , and San Diego. We are meeting up with friends from San Diego at to camp and surf then heading down to San for more of the same, about three weeks total. There will be six of us, all riding your mats, the same group as last year. With everyone having
The photo is mine, taken at sunset bay. You can use it if you want.
And I would like to thank you again on behalf of all the mat riders of southern Oregon for making are life more enjoyable.
