The death of a 4GF Fatty?

Is this mat beyond repair? I am hoping it isn't as the i-beams are undamaged but I am concerned that it may not be because the tear ends so close to the edge of the mat at the bottom of the image!
"What was that you said?"
"Oh, of course, you want to know how it happened?"
"Well, it occurred because some little $5^@_+%$!*^ who should not have been out in the water didn't get the nose of his board down in time as I shot across the face of the wave straight over his ^)*%$# head!"
It is the speed that gets them and the inability to conceive of the notion that a mat rider might be able to turn and go across the wave face!
Before I rather slowly and awkwardly bodysurfed in with a heavy water filled mat in tow, I let him know he had just helped to destroy a $300 surf mat and that next time he needed to get out of the %#+*!@ way!
