    I have used either Hydro turf or AP Design mats on every ski I owned. The only shrinkage problems have been with the factory OEM shit mats. Either Gator or HT would be an excellent choice.

    This winter my stock "shit mats" are gone. Mine tend to expand in the sun and warp up. Not to mention they get hot as hell. I'm not really a fan of the gator pattern but i hear both gator grip and hydro turf are well worth the money from my friends that have them.

    Here's my take. If you ride bare footed, Gator grips are more comfortable and provide enough grip. If you ride with shoes, Hydroturfs are better because the have better grip, but are not as comfy to the bare foot.

    Thanks for the input Franko, I normally ride barefoot but that info is good to know. I went to get a pair of Slippery shoes a few weeks ago but everyone around here is sold out of my size. I think the shoes and Hydro turf mats are just what i need since i like ocean wave jumping and slippery feet is a bad thing.

    As far as I know both are available. The Gators are a special order from Hot Products distributors. They are priced about the same as the HT, maybe a few bucks less. Most go with the HT...they must like the sexy model in the mag adds !!
