Corona Virus Lockdown: 4 Mat Go Outs Across The Globe

On the North Shore, Andre cracked early morning Velzyland on his Standard. These kinds of rollers are a lot more fun to ride than they look. The end of the last ride, where he negotiates some cris-cross backwash, is a mat surfing classic that only the cognoscenti will appreciate...

Andre wrties:

"My friend Skie Facer shot the footage. 

His wife is a professional videographer for all the upcoming Surfers and companies around the world and he just shoots for fun on the side so he hooked me up. 

He has a lot of respect for the old school roots and we surf V land together regularly and share waves.

(We will film more tomorrow, hopefully.)"


The Queensland Superbank was pumping, and this image snuck into the Surfer Magazine home page...with an anonymous matter dropping in on what had to be an all time ride...


The Central California mat-mob had a session at Morro Rock...


And of course, Adam and the SCUMM crowd got their usual unreal go out at Gilligan's Island...along with some mushy sentiment that's WAYYYYY beyond their usual emotional IQ. Disturbing, to say the least!

To wit:

"We had a super session with the SCUMM & SUB SCUMM crew yesterday morning, a total of 8 mat riders in the water, we outnumbered the board riders for a few moments !

All the World needs is some LOVE at the moment considering whats happening with this covid virus!

Our Pool Party was officially cancelled yesterday and money refunded back into our accounts...bummer!

Take Care !!
