Following this post, MT has generously taken the time to take images and provide informative additional material in relation to the smaller mats he designed and the role of rocker in surf mats. The first pic shows the MT2 and MT3 he had made by Dale Solomonson to his very specific instructions. It also shows the 15 4GF surf mats that MT has demolished over many years as he evolved his own ideas on surf mat design. I think I wouldn't mind living where MT does too, as the view is pretty spectacular.
The Bernoulli formula of ( L=CL P/2 SV2) states:
As the (V) Velocity of the fluid increases, (P) Pressure of the fluid decreases, therefore creating (L) Lift and is the reason a jumbo jet can stay in the air carrying 500 tonnes.
Rocker is based on this principle in that it amplifies the fluid and creates lift by decreasing the pressure of that fluid. In the pic you can see MT flexing up the rocker so as he can attack the lip. I guess if a subtle curve already exists in the bottom of the mat then it is only going to enhance being able to carry out a move like this. To my question as to when rocker is at it's most effective MT replied "It"s always working to lift ya fat ass up and out of the water to get planing and up to speed!"
