it is hardwired in my brain to push down on the nose during the takeoff, but that absolutely didn't work on the mat.

I was wrong about this.  I learned that I do need to push on the nose to get into waves, it just requires alot more finesse than a sponge.

pretty much hooked on this thing now.

Re: surfmat candy

the cool thing  about the mat is you will keep making these lil discoverys for years and years to come .
the more i ride it i find  that i can do things i thought were not possible it just takes a different touch then a boogie.


heres some honorary mat candy Al Santos and son Kai sharing a wave

Re: surfmat candy

Any know what kind of bag Al Santos used? I saw him killing full point sandys on that thing years ago and it looked super fun.

Re: surfmat candy

He used to use a percale bedsheet out at General's.  Personally witnessed him shredding out there on that thing.  Weirdest thing ever...he'd swim out dragging this bedsheet, then pull the corners together and let the wind fill it with air, and then lay on the inflated sheet and kick into waves with his fins and ride them all the way into the shorebreak.  Classic!

Re: surfmat candy

Re: surfmat candy

Bret looks like your doing great for the short time you have had  with the mat.
riding a boogie can give you a  head start but it can take a long time to lose the boogie style.

stoked you put up some shots

Re: surfmat candy

I would love to snake the shit out of one of those mat kooks.
