Ready to take yourself less seriously? Perhaps round out your quiver of shortboards, handboards, and longboards? Mat might be just the guy!
Don't dismiss him as just another kook in the line up. This inflatable nylon raft is rumored to have unreal speed and sensation, even in junk conditions, making the surf mat a fun alternative to wave riding.
"Surfers willing to try mats have an element of adventure and individuality. They're predisposed to accepting the experience for what it is, then follow their hearts," said Paul Gross, a surfboard designer, shaper and surf mat rider since the 1960's. Come check out Mat and his alternative surf friends (including Slyde Handboards) at StokeFest on February 17th, 2013 at Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California!
