Watch Mark Thompson of Krypt surf mats ride some waves on his inflatable craft. The video is long but if you watch the last section, you won’t believe how much speed he can generate on what you’d think would be a dumpy little toy in the water. The secret to using surf mats is in the way you grip and shape them to make them harder and softer and to shape the body of the vehicle to the contours of the wave. I tried to ride one once with these principles in mind and I got destroyed, so don’t ask me for any tips.

P.S. Sorry for not posting recently. I’ve been on a van trip through the desert and coastline of Southern California for a few days.
