Sure, could've been longer, but I love how at the end the surf mat guy says, "Sorry dude - didn't see ya!"  ::)

"What in bloody hell is a 'surf mat'?"

if you have to ask...

here's a hint; a mat rider was one of the leading figures of the shortboard revolution

in 1968, nat young declared him to be "the greatest surfer in the world today."

something that will bloody your nipples quicker and more effectively than any surf wax.

BTW if you don't know what a surf mat is, http://lmgtfy.com/?q=What+the+blood+hell+is+a+surf+mat (http://lmgtfy.com/?q=What+the+blood+hell+is+a+surf+mat)

Interesting... They must be more common up on LI. Aside from tourists goofing around on inflatable rafts, I honestly can't recall ever seeing someone on an inflatable in an NJ lineup, or really anywhere for that matter, in the 20+ years I've been surfing.

I am no lover of SUP's, but i bet the fun and games end the next time when the SUP dude says sorry for spearing you, i thought you were a shark.

You haven't been looking, there's guys on lbi, oc, Avalon and cape may.........tend to ride under the radar.....it's a niche kind of thing.     I started when I was rehabbing the centro America MERSA infection in my knee, and kept with it when I could ride boards again.    Great backup toys on long trips. You pay no $ to the airline.  Ridden mine in panama, the Maldives, outer banks.....easy to start , hard to master.     Good mats=money and time but! totally worth it.   I keep mat and fins in back of car for getting wet at any time.
