Frequenting the waves of South Wales, Matt is a long time surfer, windsurfer and kitesurfer who like many, first got into SUP as something to do when the surf wasn't up to much.
An initial curiosity quickly turned into a full on passion when he got hold of an 8'5 Starboard Pocket Rocket back in 2011.
That board was a game changer in terms of opening his eyes to riding waves on a SUP. Since then he's been SUPing more and more whilst using smaller and smaller boards.
He's now using the Starboard Pro 7’4 which he claims is the best yet!
Matt's passion in SUP is to be the one on that secluded peak furthest up the beach or round the headland away from the crowds.
However he has competed in 2015 where he finished 1st in the lower tier event of the 2015 BSUPA championships at Watergate Bay.
After a year long hiatus getting to grips with fatherhood he is now looking to compete in the again in the 2017 BSUPA surf series.
