AJ and Serenity hit the Small Time.

I've just heard from AJ Goodwin and her Ute, Serenity. Although they've been hooked up for aa little while, hooking up with waves on this leg of their amazing world tour hasn't been so easy. Here's what AJ had to say:

Hi Graeme - I finally got "Serenity" wet yesterday. The waves weren't awesome and the water is darn cold here but the mat is perfect!


Getting out through messy beach break was no problem, I could get up to speed with a quick paddle and kick to catch a wave and even on some pretty low power wind swell I got some serious speed. Had a blast until I got so bone cold I had to stop.
Next week we head to Japan... Will share when we hit the waves there. 


Great stuff! I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing about that! Phileas will be heading to Japan at some point so maybe AJ and her husband, Chris will get to hook up with her. 

Two surfmat adventures crossing paths. Sounds pretty good. 


G-Mat 103 (AKA "Serenity")

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been working on a mat for AJ Goodwin. AJ is currently travelling around SE Asia with her husband Chris and has been riding mats for sometime, but struggled to find a good fit, being quite petite.

The obvious beauty of custom mats of course is that they fit. AJ was looking for an all rounder so a Ute was the obvious choice and Serenity was born.  Serenity has a 200 denier deck gripped with grey Sikaflex EBT and 70d I-beams and bottom skin. She is a free-breather and has a positive elastic rocker. 

From what I gather, AJ and Serenity should rendezvous in South Korea. I've tried to talk AJ in to taking a trip to the north to try some of those spots on Google Earth but she's having none of it!

Hope to see some pics in the future.
