Riding Clean

A proper introduction to 'CT rookie Matt Banting

Matt Banting, a new name for all the salty old goats out there to grumble about. He’s got a style so clean and a level of consistency so high that it shouldn’t be a one-and-done ‘CT berth for this guy. See his ‘W’ at Snapper in his first heat on Tour, against Mick Fanning and Jack Freestone nonetheless, to back that up.
