This site has been created as an online focal point for surfmat riders in the UK and beyond. 

For those who are new to these amazing craft, we have put up a section all about mats which will hopefully give some insight into surfmats, why we ride them, advice on which swim fins are best suited to mat surfing, as well as some technical tips on riding and mat maintenance, but if all that falls short then please get in touch and we’ll do our best to answer any questions.


We are immensely proud to present Here & Now. California's Ken McKnight interviews notable mat surfers and others around the globe who have contributed to mat surfing.

As the name suggests, the focus is towards what is happening now and where mat surfing is going. 


Visit our online store to get your hands on Surfmats, Alder Burn socks and DaFin swimfins and finsavers.

UK and International shipping are available.


The Media section of the site features a range of surfmat articles and video. We are more always looking for new (or old) content so please get in touch.

We are more than happy to consider original articles for publication. 


The UK Mat Surfers Community is the place to get together with other mat surfers. Arrange hookups, and talk about your adventures, read blog articles and join in the discussion or perhaps write your own.

The old UKMS Forum is still there to be viewed and is packed full of helpful information. You can still reply to posts to interact with the authors but new topics have been disabled.

You can even sell your stuff!

We use Disqus as a chat medium so logging on and getting going is hassle free!


UK Mat Surfers are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube so be sure to follow us via the icons at the bottom of the page.  We are keen to document as much of the UK and Irish Surfmat scene as possible so please get in touch and send us your videos and photo's for us to share. 

Here is the latest video on our YouTube page. Enjoy!
