Matt McCabe’s Backyard

A energizing reel of the high-flying Californian around his home in Ventura

Matt McCabe has a pretty awesome backyard. It’s full of air sections, sailboats, and suntanning buns. In this first episode of his new web series, McCabe shows off some of his favorite waves in that backyard (aka Ventura) then proceeds to crush ’em. There’s a tinge of raw Cory Lopez feel that must not be overlooked. Altogether, the edit is energizing and will make you want to go try something new the next time you paddle—exactly what an edit should do, right? The contraption at 0:49 is worth mentioning, as is the barrel at 0:56 and the method-oop at 2:25.
