new kmat test

The video below is of Ken testing out a new mat in "small and shitty surf"

Watch this a few times and take a look at how fast he is going.

Think about how fast he goes when he has some disent waves to ride.

Ken in this case is Ken McKnight of fame.

I believe this was captured by his usual partner in crime James who is mentioned in a nice blog entry at 70 percent.

Ken and James are who I think of as the Godfathers of the southern California mat scene.

There really aren't enough people to constitute a scene but you know what I mean.

I was actually able to get in the water this weekend.

I had a great time even though I had been sick for a while and I can still feel it.

Nice to see some south swell in the water!!

With the swell and the off shore winds I'm sure some fun was had.
