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 AllAboutSurf.com 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.

BB - True words

A - The kmat is a "marginal conditions" mat Dale Solomonson came up with. Here is a link http://surfmatz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=22 to a post at Surfmatz.com where he goes over the different models
