The Lotus at P-Pass. They say first time somebody matted P-Pass. I don't know if that is true.

I have just come off a 3 day weekend, with Friday near flat, Saturday had a increase to 2-3ft and this morning was BOOM...we finally got some decent swell and a early offshore wind to go with it.

I have attached some vision from the past couple of surfs, with myself just loving the Standard, which I can ride at a lot lower inflation compared to the Lotus. There is a nice sequence of shot's of Paul surfing his Omni.

Regards from OZ

Baja Quiver From Paul

Hi Paul,

2 mats (Standard and Vespa), fins, handplane.....all with everything else in my carry on.
Met a guy from Santa Barbara on a Fatty.

Got some really fun ones on the Standard.  

Waves were steep and pitchy at times, and the Standard really locked in and flew!
The 80 degree water temp certainly helped. 

We are already planning to go back next Thanksgiving. 

Beers and fish tacos and warm surf. Good living.

I'm staying at Alex Knost's this morning I rode your (his) Omni mat !!! 

Looking forward to own one of your mats !!! Can't wait !!!

I needed the mat for an upcoming trip to the canary islands next week, but it will be for the next time! 

Got few clips for you of Alex riding your mat this am. I hope you will like them.

Hey Paul,

Hope your well, good to hear that your on the mend albeit slowly.  Well we’ve managed to spread the 4GF stoke a little further again and you know we enjoy it..haha

Glad Mike got in touch with you .. he was pretty stoked after his first 4GF experience, he was blown away that we mat riders were so plentiful down these parts and warmed to us SCUMMbags quickly.

Mike soon learnt the art of sharing..


footage of our morning's fun..

Take care friend..

Hi Paul,

I felt compelled to send you the attached photo I took a few years back. The bottom turning at flank speed on the inside is Scott "Elvis" Kurst, James "Mattitude" Sowell is going a million mph in the middle and Eli Kurst down the line trying in vain to take off. Shot deliciously in color on a very overcast day (can you tell?)

Below is another pic from the same day, with Scott in the Bowl.

Hi Paul,

Just came back from a small trip to Portugal. 
That day the weather was pretty bad, but the waves were ok. 
Hope all is well with your health conditions. 
Say hi to Gloria!
