Took out the “Stray Cat” the day before my surgery. The local Point was working so I went out and had fun. Waves were about three foot but not steep or hollow. I thought it was a little faster than my other (different brand) surfmat and a little more responsive. The grip works a treat with a wetsuit on and a one-way valve is definitely the bomb.
Discovering surf mats really put the spark back into my surfing but without all the competitor bullshit.
