That was insane!
look how f'in fast he was going!!
FINALLY!!..some decent mat video that captures the essence of speed, and pure trim, that are fully realized on these unassuming vehicles! Both Dale S. & Paul G. are purveyors of classic stoke!Thanks for the clip, KP.
look how f'in fast he was going!!that was 2005you should see him now
So much speed... amazing. Laughing at the 'double-fade' at the end though.
damn how faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast!!Eefmonsterboards.org
For sure - best capture of that slippery speed sizzle I've seen to date.
reminds me of some of the older grennough vids-both made it look soooo easy; i.e., i still have trouble NOT sliding off my two solomonson bags...this was just plain inspiringthanks for posting
open minded bliss.
All world! nice to see. . .hoo-ti-hoo!
so much subtlety in the flipper control, the drag and release, inspirational
spread the word, make it cool and then i will try it. until then i am on my fish and it is sick
Ha ha!(Fingers crossed you WERE being ironic... Sure you were)G
restrain me. oh yeah, make it cool, of course,thats our main goal around here.mat surfing is new?really? your very own "cool" littlesecret? does the craft you ride make youcool? is being cool more important thanhaving fun? i thought greenough "spread the wordand made it cool" several decadesago. or was that john severson?
Do you think that paddler tries to spear him at 0:16? What with that and the flying kick out toward the end of the vid, there seems like some serious envy going down. If you can't have it, impale it!
I thought that.G
anyone know what's what with dale s.? heard he'd been sick. ordered a mat months ago, no word from the man.
I have personally talked to a number of people in the US and Australia who have paid for and not received their Dale Solomonson Neumatics. I know he was in ill health some years back...If you are lookin for a mat, try Paul Gross throughfouthgearflyer.com Hope Dale is ok!Roger
should be fourthgearflyer.comLo Siento,Rogelio
roger"hope dale is o.k." like hell you do matego aheadstick the knife in and twistdale is working hard catching upeveryone will get their mats in due time he has been having extreme difficulties most others would have given up by now but he still makes the best mats at any priceand has not gone bankruptlike you know who
Dale is still in buisness, don't give up you will get your mat, just have faith. Dale's the man.
we may not even have nylon mats as we know them without dale solomonson think about that those of you who are among the select convertslife without the high performance nylon mat !!!!! ????????
first wave good then YAWN!
dale solomonson is the man! the wait is way worth it. that long triangular box that arrives by mail is like a lightning bolt sent from haven!jeremy ny
I ordered a neumatic surfmat from Dale early April. Heard from him in June that he had been very crook with a skin ailment.
Dale Solomonson makes a good mat. But his original business model of demanding full payment up front and then having his customers wait up to 6 months or more for a mat, finally broke down with his health. Now there are alot of people waiting 2 years for a mat they've already paid for-- their money spent. This is what happens when people/businesses require more than a reasonable deposit for an ordered product. Risky business!
have to agree with the last statement.Dale makes a great mat, is a true ambassador for mat riding and its a shame that health issues have gotten in the way of his business.I understand where Warren is coming from, but also understand that 4th gear has been able to put very functional mats under the bellies of many stoked matters is a very short amount of time.I am lucky to own and enjoy both and am glad there are two mat makers to fuel the addiction!As to that video above, I like to watch it before bed and have amazing matting dreams...
Well there are alot of people who ordered through Dale for their first mat and they have been waiting 2+ years. If it was a $100 deposit, they could blow it off and order with someone else. But he demanded and took $280-350 from people upfront for full payment when he was also running a huge backorder on these, unable to fulfill orders in a timely manner. Its hardly any reconcilliation that they get their mats some 2-3 years later waiting for their first try in the sport or worse ordered from 4thGearFlyer with still some obscure promise of getting a neumatic??. They'll really be toasted about all this when good quality Chinese mats at affordable prices start rolling to a shore near you.
envy? I think he was nearly speared b/c he's a drop-in artist. Why would you leave that last abominable takeoff in your video, the accentuate it with a cymbal crash? The raft may be fast, but the guy's a dick in the water.
We're still waiting for those good quality Chinese mats. The current crop are piss poor. I guess we'll just have to make do with quality mats built by craftsmen until the factories in China and Taiwan get some children in who take pride in their work.
I don't know who this Dale Solomonson or Paul Gross are. Mat history goes Surfoplane... Krypt. Nothing in between. It's all there on the Krypt website so must be true. I mean, I don't believe for a second Mark Thompson would make it up and take credit for developments that aren't his. That would make him a right cunt wouldn't it?
