Hey Dustin. Welcome. You are a bloody lucky man living at Lennox and having both MT and GG ( and a few other pretty handy riders ) to watch. Yeh mats get you in the end don't they?

they are just too easy to have fun on, most of my friends I surf with are now hooked on them too.

we've all got krypt mt5's and i got a 4gf tracker for xmas and i'm loving the drift in the turns you can get from it. i also have fun on a canvas one that was made in the 80's by a toy company and I have an original surf o plane.

I thought that might be the case. Tracker holds a highline very well too once you get up there and yep nice controlled drifts as a bonus! How have you gone on the Surfoplane?Although they are big bloody cumbersome things I was surprised how well it went once I managed to get it on to a clean wave! How does the canvas one go? You have a great quiver there!

yeah the tracker definitely holds a nice highline, I've only ridden the surfoplane once, I bought it recently at a garage sale for $10, the owner said it hadnt been ridden for 30 years because the the bung had rotted inside the air hole bit and they couldnt use it. So I drilled out the hole was able to blow it back up and got a new plug for it. As for the canvas one its my go to mat for a fun day at the beach when the surf isnt too great, definitely not as fast as the mt5 and tracker. I think my quiver will probably grow this year also, I might even have to get rid of some surfboards to make more room for my mats haha

I have one of the new generation surfoplanes that are being manufactured again. It cost me $100 which is pretty good value considering the work that has gone in to making it.

do you use your surfoplane much? theres a guy standing up in one of the pictures in the ad...wild! I like your blog post, its very true that if I hadnt seen a surf mat that was readily available in a surf shop then I probably wouldnt have looked into getting a 4gf. Both the krypt and 4gf mats are excellent, each different which is great. There is nothing worse then getting bored and stale from riding the same thing over and over.

I have taken it out a couple of times and need to do so again because it was a bit of hoot. Check this post and watch what the kids back in the 60's were doing on their surfoplanes. I have introduced a chat box at the bottom of the forum main page so you can rap with anybody else who is visiting in real time.
