    Matting Mythbusters-Part 2!

    Post  piskian on Thu Dec 01, 2011 6:48 am

    Hello again.
    After my first Mythbuster about wind,it has continued to blow like a bihatch!Let's see what happens next.
    Now,"The Quiver".
    All you really need is ONE decent mat which comes up to about your bellybutton from the floor and just a tad wider than the widest part of your body( in my case,my shoulders) when lightly inflated(say til you can fold it over on itself).
    That's it.

    I think I'd have to agree. I like to have a quiver to have spares but I think you can get so stuck on switching mats you never really master one. Learning to adjust your riding to suit different waves will make you a better surfer I think. It also avoids that "I should have brought out..." thing.

    Here's Ian's first bust, in case anyone missed it:



    "G" Custom Surfmats:
    G-Mar 13, AKA "Lucky". (70/70d, 3 pontoon with Vulkem Stippleback Grip)
    G-Mat 12, AKA "Geoffrey". (100x70/70d, 3 pontoon with Vulkem Stippleback grip)
    G-Mat 11, AKA "Casper". (70/70d, 4 pontoons with Vulkem Stippleback grip)
    G-Mat 10, AKA "Mr Hankey ". (70/70d, 4 pontoons with Vulkem Stippleback grip)
    G-Mat 7, AKA "Kenneth". (70/70d, 3 pontoons with Vulkem Stippleback grip)
    G-Mat 5, AKA "The Displexperiment". (200/70d, 4 pontoons with Vulkem Stippleback grip)
    4GF Blue Streak Standard (S-FAHT Stippleback grip)
    Traditional Surfing Co "Da Bomb" Bellyboard
    "G" 9mm ply Narrow Guitar Pick Paipo, AKA "Sputnik"

    Only ever ride my standard these days. I think Gs right once you get the inflation dialed in on one mat you really get to know it.
