Summer is Coming!
This is my "Blackball Beater". I'll probably spend as much of the summer on it as I will any of my boards. Why? Because summer is the time when I enjoy being outside the most. And on the days when I don't want to surf or get chased out of perfectly good waves by that irritating blackball flag, I'm going to put my mat to good use. I will probably be on it on days when I do a double session. If I'm still woefully unemployed, I'll be doing morning sessions on a board and afternoon sessions on a mat. Or vice versa. I just like having options. A mat is still a surf-related craft. And once you get it going, it's better than any rollercoaster ride. You should get you one.
