  4. No Laughing Matter – Visions of a surf mat enthusiast
    Episode 2: Goodbye Mc-25
    Location: County Sligo, Ireland

    This was two days ago at a horror slab I've not surfed (for good reason) since 2006. The bomb sets you want nothing to do with. It was getting dark so finally I decided to make a break for it – paddling the five or so metres in from the take off spot to where the dry rock shelf tilts into the sea – a sneaker set rumbled in and I was right under it in about waist deep right on the corner of the slab where it first pitches. I let go of the mat for fear of getting pulled back and over the falls into about a foot of water.
    I swam down along the cliffs dodging further sets searching for the mat, scrabbling up onto draining shelves and slippery boulders under 30 foot cliffs as it was going black – no sign. I just managed to time it well enough to scramble back around the cliffs and not get washed off in the dark. It's a hectic spot – one way in, one way out – right where the sets drain the water off the shelf before pitching back onto it, barrell down in a few feet of water before squashing you into a cliff-face.

    She's gone – where she is now I don't know. Hell of a wave though.

    The clips in this No Laughing Matter series are intended to evolve with technique both on the mat and post-production. If you dig it, great - we're both winning.
