From Chris ...

 
Hi Paul,

I've been having alot of fun with the Fatty over the last few months; I usually bring a variety of boards depending on the day, but I always bring the mat out. Regardless of the conditions, the mat is a blast! My wave count has certainly increased, and I'm getting a full body work out since using my legs quite a bit more.

I also have a whole new appreciation for mat surfers - there is no where to hide with a bag of air when waves are closing out on top of you!

Attached a few pics of Rob P on some dawn patrol slop...


Regards,
Chris

Great pics Chris! It's amazing what a mat will do in slop! Some of our best sessions have come during conditions that where not favorable for conventional surf craft. I have not smiled this much in years :-)! I just got my Polara Super Sport today and I am super stoked for the next good swell!

Though I have had "better" rides, most of my most fun and memorable surfing sessions in my life have been on a mat, in solitary splendor, in conditions that any "normal" surfer would drive past without even slowing down.
