Commercial fisherman by trade and big wave surfer by choice, this California native has found the true balance and meaning in working hard and playing harder. Matt gets up early, before the sun, to get prepped and ready for a day on the boat with his Dad. When he’s not fishing to earn a living, you can find Matt on route to his favorite surf spots along the coast. When the ocean comes alive Matt prefers to charge Mavericks where the risk can outweigh the reward – but it’s worth it and the end of the day when you make it to the shore alive.

That’s when I decided. I’m going to structure my life so that my job supports my passions.
