The Ventura native is a wizard in the wind. Give that man a wedge with some gusts climbing up the face and he’ll show you how a helicopter works.
This particular edit was filmed on either side of a pier near Matt’s house. The south side of the pier offers a rip-fueled bowl that allows for a few funnels and plenty of ramps. The northside, receiving the brunt of Ventura’s afternoon northwesterlies, is where the big rotators happen. Perhaps the only person to surf this wave better than Matt is Dane Reynolds. And I don’t think Matt would be too mad about that.
