In a stunning turn of events, I gave away a mat today to a little boy. His mom, who had him in the shorebreak on a board and a boogie board, asked if she could put him on my mat, saying she remembered riding them when she was little. She also mentioned the boogie board had hit him in the gut. So she wanted to let him try the mat.
The time was right. They were nice people. It just seemed like the thing to do. When they came to the parking lot. I grabbed my old Omni and walked it over to him. His mom was shocked and offered to pay me for it. I declined and said I was just passing on the stoke.
