Tomo & The Mighty Bellyslide



Just in case you've not come across this elsewhere, here's Mark Thomson in high speed action. 11 minutes long, but worth the time- kick back with the morning coffee and get stoked. If you get really stoked, don't forget Tomo's mat deal- $195 shipping included. Email us at info @ foamandfunction.com and we'll set you up. Some of that footage was shot by Mick Waters, who's 'Little Black Wheels' is getting a nice honor with a screening at the Cucalorus Independent Film Festival in Wilmington, NC. We have signed DVDs of the film available too, and couldn't be happier for Mick. Now if only there was some swell.....

Please don't bother with Krypt surfmats.Overpriced,badly mass produced in Taiwan,and only work at full inflation like a blow-up bodyboard.Too small for most riders too.Better off with a Fourth Gear Flyer from Paul Gross.MUSA,quality,great service and a proper magic towel...

I'd have to agree.Mine was badly welded,not aligned properly,and valve was a joke.Split within a month.Very disappointing and considering the showmanship and posturing of its maker,quite embarrassing.The original design was by Dale Solomonson,by the way;and Mark still couldn't get them right.Oh dear.
Nice bodyboard vid though!

I had a knee injury in 2010 that had my surfing limited to a mat for 6 months. I rode a Krypt nearly everyday of those 6 months and in my experience never had a problem with quality or ability to go beyond all expectations of high speeds while riding properly under-inflated... a great ride and quality still strong to date. I also spent a fair share of time on a 4th Gear Flyer "Fatty"... a great ride too. Subtle differences that can be appreciated from ride/feel of each mat.

Wow, who knew there was such mat hostility? It reads a bit like spam sorry, and of the dozen or so people I know with Mark's mats (RT among 'em) I've never heard a word of complaint but plenty of praise. Same came be said for the people I know with PG's mats too, and many of them overlap.

By the way, when the showmanship and posturing is footage of speed runs like those, I'm OK with it.

Don,t blam the tools negative ones,
Where all on the same piece of plastic.
Nothing between me and the wave but 20 microns of plastic
If you carn,t do it ask your self what am I doing wrong
Accelerate your DNA.
Our planet is in a peroiod of great change.
Time to jump to the next level.
I hope your all comeing with me.
