Here is a pretty cool mat site with some nice videos. Maybe I'll try a mat sometime. I still don't get how you can duck dive or get outside on one of these things. I have a hard enough time with my foam board.

Duckdiving a mat is a skill for sure and only good in small surf. Grab front corners and shove down hard with body sort of lifted off mat; that forces the air towards the rear so front collapses and sinks. Really similar to ducking a hard board only that you can't shove w/ with your knee. Bigger surf just let out the air and swim it out tucked under your arm as if going bodysurfing and re-inflate once outside.
