Ahoy ladies and gents, this is DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) a 70/70 Rubber Bucky built for Pete D'Ewart in Washington State in the US of A.
I always enjoy building mats for Pete. He is a real connoisseur and this is his fourth custom G-Mat. You can see the others here:
Pete was actually my first ever customer so it is always a pleasure to build a mat for him.
So back to DBS. As mentioned, she is a Rubber Bucky. 70/70 free breather with a free rocker. Being a Rubber Bucky there is a deep concave up the middle which provides good lift, with the mat being designed to ride on the wide inside pontoon in trim.
The bottom skin and I-beams are made from the very last scraps of the beautiful green 70 denier fabric from my role so Pete is in for a quick sensitive ride. I can already hear the cries of anguish from those who have fallen in love with the green fabric. Please rest assured that I will get some more when I can.
It looks like the run of good swell continues for the US West coast so Pete should be getting plenty. DBS is more minded towards subtle sensitive low inflation glides than keeping life together in hectic conditions but she will certainly have a prime spot in Pete's quiver, I'm sure.

Word from Pete:
"DBS, double bag and T landed today. G-121is a beauty, another fine design realized with obvious attention to detail. Can't wait to get it wet. In the meantime, I've inflated DBS well beyond riding hardness to admire the contours indoors. Thanks. Your mats more often disappear when I'm on a wave, full body flying."
Happy so far it seems.
