    Wishing Dale Solomonson a Speedy Recovery

    Post  GRAYMAN on Tue Sep 18, 2012 6:41 am

    I'm sure everyone is aware of Dale Solomonson. For anybody who isn't, Dale is the master mat builder behind Neumatic Surfmats. A genius in every sense of the word, Dale has created innumerable custom mats, as well as a whole range of other innovative surfcraft (plus a whole bunch of other amazing inventions).



    It is well documented that Dale has also suffered with his health over the years and I am sorry to say that I have received an email from a mutual friend to say that Dale is ill again and in hospital.

    Personally, I owe Dale so much for teaching me to build mats, always showing patience and support, taking as much time as it took to impart so much wisdom.

    Please join me in wishing the great man all the best and a speedy recovery.

    G

    I just wrote Dale an email wishing him a speedy recovery.
    Had a nice day riding my Neu Contrail in some small waves, I was sending positive energy his way with each wave I rode.

    People have spoken with Dale and he sounds in good spirits. Treatment is ongoing so he's in for a bit. I'll try to call him. If people want to send emails it's dalesolomonson@gmail.com

    Cheers

    Just had a long chat with Dale. Sounds good. We talked about mat building too of course. Great to hear his passion.

    Sounds like he's getting good care too.

    Unfortunately he doesn't have web access.

    I bought my Neumatic off Dale back in 05. Top guy who gave me plenty of feedback on how to ride the thing. Hope his health improves, so he can get back to doing what he wants.
