The future of surfing mats

For some reason I have been pondering this lately
Lots of changes going on,
Paul has his new Fourth Gear Tracker Roundtail
Dale is always cooking up something new
Still waiting to see how Mark's new mats turn out.
But I wonder,
are we still at the very beginning of the Golden Age of Matting
or well along the path at this point?
I suppose it doesn't matter.
What will mat riding be like in 50 years?
A platform for commercial advantage?
A springboard to evolutionary advancement?
Or just super fun to ride?
I guess we'll have to wait to see.
PS There is some new mat footage from Musica Surfica over at Cabinessence RORER 714
PPS The young lady in the photo above is my hero.
Every go out, my goal is to have this much fun.
On the good days I do.
