Be warned it’s not as easy as the pros make it look. In fact, there’s an international comedian who states that it would be easier to eat handfuls of sand and drink a bucket of salt water!

Matt himself has been teaching surfing since 1983 and is more than qualified with many years experience competing in pro events as well as being Head Coach of the NSW team, Level 1 Presenter and current NSW and Northern Beaches Champion.
