footage how intrigued I was by Warren Pfeiffer bobbing his head up and down so much and now I understand why.
Of course, a fundamental change at the physical level usual results in a change in the head also and I think it was the subtle change in the relationship that occurred between myself and the mat out there in the water today that led me to it. Now everybody else in the matting world has probably already realised this or thinks I am completely nuts (Yeh, ok I already proved that one to you all) but I think that mimicking the way a dolphin moves through the water as one mat rides might be a really useful thing to do. I know Daniel Thomson has thought this also as he used it here in a post after he had started riding a mat so perhaps it is not so far fetched a thought?
I know how intrigued GG was by the way dolphins moved so efficiently through the water and I am suspecting that his choice to ride a mat and the mats evolution into a thing that is malleable in shape may have been driven by the quest to mimic the dolphins movement through the water.
Anyway, my new mantra? "Ride like a dolphin!"
