Speaking of ASB, that mat is now a model called the Rubber Bucky. Here he is on one:

I've been working with elastic rockers on my last couple of builds.

The first is Festus Porkmeyer's new mat, Wiggleworm and the second is Warren Pfeiffer's new ride, Max.

I'm keeping them subtle but nice to kick in on harder turns.

Elastic rocker. There when you need it, flat when you don't.

After two outings on Wiggleworm, I’m giving her big thumbs-up. The kind of thumbs that swell up after getting clubbed by a hammer in cartoons.

The first surf was in peaky 2- to 3-foot reef waves that required frequent directional changes. The cutbacks felt pretty nuts. Fill that outside rail and she comes around real good without shedding any speed in the transition back to a flat plane. The more committed the turn, the better the response.

The second session was at a nice jetty left where you usually run it at speed from start to finish, trying to find high lines along the way. Got a couple screamers — even a 2-foot insider that lit up. Wiggleworm is lively. Can’t wait to work out the subtle adjustments at speed. Really stoked on this mat so far. More research to be done in the next few days …

Thanks, G!

First off, the 4 pontoon model I've been waggling around has been well and truely tested and is now a bona fide G-Mat model:

G-Mat Chino Racer


P1080089.JPG

G-Mat 58

Gentle elastic rocker and a Hestered valve.

Here's some schpeel:

The 4 pontoon Chino Racer is the “gun” of the G-Mat range, being the choice for waves overhead and bigger, or heavier and hollow smaller surf. Tested in solid conditions, the feedback has universally been that this mat needs a decent wave to get going but when it does, it is really quick from the off, giving a very assured and predictable hold. Warren Pfeiffer has described this model as “feeling like it is locked on rails”.

The mat is relatively narrow and the 4 pontoon design reduces the overall volume making it easier to get under waves.  The I-Beam configuration through the middle pontoons features 2 lower I-beams with a slightly taller central I-Beam giving a concave through the bottom and increased stability through the centre line.

200/70 configuration (200 denier deck and 70 denier bottom skin). 


In other news, I've put together a wee graphic to help people to know where each mat in the range sits:

Hope that's helpful.

Cheers

G
