Fatty is on the way!

The wave riding opportunities lately have been pretty mediocre ( closes outs in the main very like the pic ) and I have been making the choice to use my bodyboard as it was hopeless bothering about using anything else. Now don't get me wrong, as I have mentioned before, I don't have any problem with body boarding in fact, I really enjoy it.
Apart from the thrill I get from the unchanged perspective of the wave by not having to stand up as mentioned above, I also particularly appreciate the wave catching efficiency of a body board and really get off on the speed.
Because of the latter, I have lashed out and bought a surf mat 'cos it seems that they are the fastest wave riding craft of all!
Don't believe me?
Well check this out! Interesting that we share exactly the same last name.
I know it is going to be a real challenge to learn to ride as apparently everything one thought one knew about riding a wave changes. Can barely wait to try though!
