From Rob


I had a great time Saturday morning with Chris, Ryan, and Khristian! We had a blast riding mats and sharing waves. Ryan is new to mats and had a great time. The waves where small and soft, but it was still a great morning. 1' to 1.5'

I learned a lot...I learned that I should only have a few people come to introductory mat meets at a time, because once someone gets a mat in their hand they don't want to give it up until you leave!

When I plan my next mat meet next month, I will get a sign up list and take alternates in case people don't show. Small waves are challenging for new mat surfers, but they are also fun enough to hold their attention. I'm going to try and nail down a date so you can post it, but it will be sometime after the 4th of July. I'm super excited!

It was a really good time surfing with a lot of my friends. I'm truly blessed to have found you and your mats, I am really enjoying this journey.

Thanks for all that you do Paul!

Were such inflatable water rafts around then?

Eric And The Mystery Of "Tiny''

Hi Paul

Had a fun surf yesterday but no "good" piccies again of me... LOL

An older kneeboard guy nicknamed Tiny has been trying to get details of a good mat so when he saw me he let me know.

He is 6 foot 3 inches..(hence tiny) weights 93 kilo is quite fit and has been a kneelo for many years...

I told him to give you a yell and he will mention scumm ..told him mats are different to boards as he was concerned his height would be of concern ..said nah,

I still reckon a standard or a tracker would be fine.

regards eric

Hi Paul

The boys sure had a great day down sth yesterday. I was on photography duty and with my trusty little canon compact camera managed to get a couple of OK piccies.

Neal "Camo" Cameron rides a 4GF tracker exclusively and really goes good...

The boys got some awesome waves and a couple of flogging so much FUN.

Summer 2017 Sale !!!

We have some good news...

...and some bad news...

The good news is we're having a sale from now until the end of June.

The bad news is our delivery time is going to be the 2-4 week range.

I'm having some SBNLT health issues (serious-but-not-life-threatening) that are going to limit the amount of time I can spend making mats, so it will be hard to keep up with even the normal summer work load. It'll take me a couple of weeks to get a mat out, as opposed to a couple of days. And, as orders pile up, a few weeks could turn into a month.

So, to compensate customers for the inconvenience, we're knocking $50 off each high end mat. $25 bucks off Classics.

This is a rebate-style sale...meaning when you order, the full price will be charged to your account. We will rebate the sale discount back into your account within 24 hours of receiving your order.

This offer is good through June 30th. 

Any questions? Email us!

The only decision left much fun do you wanna have???
