I have something of a burning question for those of y'all who ride mats... or rather a grip of questions. All input will be much appreciated. 1) Are they really that fun? As in, I would choose a mat over a surfboard on certain days? All days? 2) Do y'all ever travel with them? Do they fit in carry ons? 3) What is their wave range? The youtube videos I've seen typically show them at mellow pointbreaks. Would you take 'em into steep dumpy beachbreak? Hollow, zippy reef nuggets over coral? Shitty windswell? I've got some travels lined up for work to conflict/post-conflict zones with shitty travel infrastructure and am trying to sniff out whether a mat is a viable substitute for a 5'10" for someone who's a bit OCD about surfing anywhere possible. If any of y'all mat practitioners end up coming through Ventura, I'd be stoked to take one of your mats for a spin before I invest in one ride-unridden. I will of course repay your kindness with a session somewhere weird, tacos and good cheer.
