Matt Meola routinely does things on surfboards that no one else can do. He does them with a sort of quiet confidence. While everyone else is surprised, Meola seems as though he always expected to do whatever crazy thing he just did. Come to think of it, that’s probably why he’s able to do it all–because he knows he can, and he’s willing to put in the time.
Matt’s had a particularly difficult last few years. After he messed up his back in Australia, he was out of the water for six months. Then, almost immediately after his return to surfing, he blew out his knee and had to spend almost a year recovering. Now, though, Matt’s back, and he’s making up for lost time.
Oh, and by the way, that soundtrack? Yeah, that’s his little sister Lily singing.
