Thanks Paul! Ky and his kid sisters worked last weekend to try and make some mats out of pool floats and a hair straightening iron. The smell of melted plastic and laughter. They took them surfing straight away and had a blast except he had to inflate his mat with every set of waves on the horizon. Ha! His first version was an old thermarest I had in college. Before my living room became a wasteland for prototypes I told him to just get the real deal!
