Developed in 1933, the
air filled surf mat was an Australian invention. It predated all of the
modern surfboard design and history that we know today.
Krypt is proud to carry
on the development of this uniquely Australian surf craft, which is at the
cutting edge of high performance surfing, into the 21st century.
The Krypt MT5 Surf Mat
is designed by surf mat master Mark Thomson. This 5th generation design is the product of 10 years design experimentation and
development, The MT5 sets
the standard for advanced fabrics in modern surf mat design and construction.
The MT5 surf mat is made from an
ultra thin, lightweight, Hi-Tech military fabric that is incredibly strong
and durable. Each surf mat features a self-sealing one-way valve that is
unique to Krypt Surf Technology.
In waves that are 1
foot to 10 feet, the Krypt MT5 is a super intuitive and exciting surf mat to
ride. It has fantastic grip on the water, which allows for incredible speed,
awesome power and extended projection through each turn.
This combination of
speed and control makes the MT5 the most advanced production surf mat ever
made. This ultra modern surf mat is a high performance surf craft
guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you surf.
