    G-Mat 11 - "Casper"

    Post  GRAYMAN on Tue Sep 18, 2012 9:01 pm

    My new mat's finished.

    G-Mat 11 is made with a really light 70d material throughout. My last few mats have been made from this but with heavier material for I-Beams. I have made a could with 70 denier I-beams before which didn't last long but I'm trying a bit of a design thing which will hopefully spread the load and keep the I-beams in one piece.

    This is a 4 pontoon mat which is identical in terms of dimentions to G-Mat 10.

    Given the risk that this mat won't last I've not bothered dying. I've gone for white on white and have therefore called it "Casper".

    Grip is going off at the mo. Inflated pics to come.

    I've just test ridden Casper for the first time in clean waist to occasional chest surf, so not big enough to test the I-beams but still great. This mat is a replica of G-Mat 10 in terms of dimensions so rode in the same way for the most part. However, the additional pliability from the lightweight I-beams was really noticeable in that the mat itself was less obviously there...

    In otherwords, that pellican feeling was pretty full on.

    Can't wait to try this in proper surf to see if I can pop it!
