What you'll do
Meet me at my local coffee shop and we'll devise a plan to get the fun started. From here we'll jump in our super spacious 14 seater minivan & head to wherever the waves are best for your skill level & style. We'll trade waves and work on techniques like equipment fine tuning, reading the waves, taking off, positioning, turns, and maybe even some barrels & airs. Join me to share some laughs and the best waves Byron has to offer!
I'm Matt Wilkinson & I've enjoyed 9 years of bringing fun and colour to WSL Championship Tour, with 3 WT event wins and top 5 in the world finishes in both 2016 and 2017. I'm a 30 year-old Australian goofy footer who grew up in the small town of Copacabana, New South Wales. For years as a child, my father and I lived in the local Surf Life Saving Club and wandered the coast in our old van. I know every nook and corner of this coastline, so I know where to head in every condition. In between World Tour events, I love coming home to Byron and scoring its points and world class beach breaks.
