MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION
G-Mat Surfmats are hand built using the very finest materials. A great deal of time, love and attention goes into the creation of each Surfmat to ensure that each surfer gets their perfect fit. I use TPU backed nylon which offers the perfect balance between weight, pliability and strength. The fabrics I use are extremely light, but the strength comes from the design. Even very lightweight G-Mats has been through some extremely heavy poundings but the internal structures and seams have never failed. Grip is applied using Polyurethane sealants. There are a huge range of suitable sealants out there but I am committed to reducing my impact on the environment as much as possible so only use those with the lowest environmental impact possible, whilst still achieving the required finish.
My commitment to the environment extends to the whole building process. Mat building uses a fair amount of electricity so the G-Mat workshop runs on 100% renewable energy.
