I've been spreading the matting word here on Maui and on Facebook, thought you might want to put the following on Surfmatters.
The photo is of the Point at Ho'okipa from this swell, not me but I like the lack of surfboard showing. Who needs a surfboard! Three days of NE swell on Maui, this was today, I've been matting every day. My favorite was the point Friday morning, one guy, "I thought you were on a jet ski, your were taking such a different line." Another guy, after I caught a wave outside and blasted past a longboarder by using a long undulating take off, "that motion you're doing is the kaneloa"(longman). I responded, yeah it's a good motion I try to do it when ever I can!
