The Inertia

If Maui is the crucible of aerial progression in surfing right now, Matt Meola is its foremost product. No offense to Albee Layer.

Of course, Matt’s been on our radar since his breakout performance in a 2011 edit for Taylor Steele’s Innersection contest that made him $100,000 richer. But somehow every single edit the man has put out since has been absolute fire, and this one, A Surfing Surfer, is no different.

Intertwined with a bit of comical, Planet Earth-esque narration, we can’t help but feel like we’re watching some other species performing in their natural habitat. As if Meola were a human surfer, but somehow one step forward in the evolutionary chain.


Only the best. We promise.
