The Inertia

The title really says it all. Matt Meola has a pet deer named Donut, who he feeds kale and bananas from his garden. And he’s competing in the all-new Vans Pipe Masters, despite the fact that he surfs Pipe “zero times a year.” However, the new format with its increased focus on airs will certainly play to his strengths. The lack of priority won’t, but with an invite in his mailbox, how could he pass up such an opportunity?


Only the best. We promise.
