    It's purely coincidental that this has been posted at the same time as PGs new mats. I swear. This is a copy of G-Mat 3 but actually has slightly less concave and slightly more rounded front corners.

    Kenneth refers to red #7 Kenny Dalglish

    I thought it was either named after Kenneth Williams-"Willo the Wisp",or Kenneth Graham(Graeme)-"Wind in the Pillows"!

    Tried "Kenneth" out today. Had one OK wave, a bunch of lumpy waves and a great wave!

    The great wave really let the mat kick into life. Very sensitiwith tons of drive. Holds well at low inflation and is really responsive. I'm very happy indeed on that front. Also, some of the bumps today were nuts with Piskian and I freefalling a good 5 feet on one! Although that's not the best for surfing it certainly tested my welds which came through fine.

    Smile

    Anyway, there's a video below of my first wave. Not my best wave, and blurred, too far out and too dark... Basically a terrible clip but I don't care! Tis a wee historical moment for me.

    cheers

    Cheers
