More Confirmation

"Riding a surf mat is unlike any other form of wave riding It’s a hard thing to do. Few others do it, Most who do have mats are open minded, experienced wave riders with lots of years of surfing behind them. For people like this surf mats are in many ways a chance to restart the circle. Also it’s hard to beat a 16 or 18 ounce inflatable surf craft which takes up less space than a tennis racket. You don’t need a monstrous vehicle to get you places, airlines can’t charge you a damn thing to take it aboard, you can get two state-of-art mats for the price of one surfboard..."

Me and My Redback

Here's the type of activity I use my Redback and scuba flippers for. Can't stomach surfing it. Good for rivers, though.

Newbie Hazing Ritual?

Wouldn't you do anything to join this elite circle of LA County matters?

Hey Paul,

My Classic has arrived! So happy!

Now, in order to join my mat riding buddies in the fun, I must blow up all of their mats before my first session in the water. This is a hazing ritual amongst a certain sub-culture of L.A. County surf matters.

Thanks again!
