Surf Mats

(Greenough on his mat)
It looks as though Surf Mats are gonna be the up and coming item to have this summer. Surfing looks like its looking at the past in order to move forward; for example, Alaias, Surf Mats, Logs. 2006 World Longboard Champion, Schuyler McFerran has a great article on Surfline, giving 10 really good reasons why we should all buy one. "...Most importantly, because we all need to take ourselves less seriously." The cool thing about these surf mats is that they've been around for a while. George Greenough used one in the 70's to take photos. They're also super cheap. Priced at around $20-30, you can easily purchase one without making a dent in your wallet.
