Just had an email from Matt Herman:
Surfed at Sycamore Cove in Ventura County today, plus snook a few in at Malibu before lifeguards freaked out on me.
Somebody called the mat a pool toy at Malibu, the guy said that mats were as bad as Costco boards to him, that made me laugh considering they are all hand-made. Sycamore Cove was fun though. There have been a few SSE swells this summer, weird stuff.
I will add my tats today, then I'll send her off.
Art is the supreme human endeavour.
Thanks so much for giving Phileas a home Matt... And for keeping her on the straight and narrow.
Off to John Mellor next. I wonder how Phileas will fit in with his wonderful array of craft?
