It is not often that I choose to take out the Vespa Roundtail, seen in the pic being unboxed by Pendo, as is is a pretty chunky mat to handle. I normally take out the bigger mats when it is small and clean but after the other days session on the Vespa, I am now wondering if I have been mistaken to do so. For some reason, even though it was a lumpy onshore day with a weak looking wind swell, I decided to give the Vespa another crack. It performed surprisingly well with the volume of the mat assisting the often whitewater assisted take offs with plenty of glide left for the reforms of which there are always plenty on offer in these conditions. I am now thinking that maybe these bigger mats are better suited to these sort of conditions and whether I might take the UDT out for another session having basically shelved it? Anyone else have any views on this?
