Thanks for the quick service on the surf mat. I plan to use it like it shows me in this picture. This is in a narrow granite canyon in central Arizona that I've been going to for more than 40 years. I sit on the mat and stay out of the cold water. The air mattress I've been using is worn out and I'm looking forward to about 15 more years going there with your surf mat.
I'm sure the surf mat will provide plenty of buoyancy for my technique. Besides, I'm
thrilled to be soon owning something that was NOT made in you-know-where by Communists.
