Matt Hoy lives live to the fullest. It’s the only way he knows how. A true original, the Australian surfs like rock n roll sounds. Fast, loud, energized, purposeful! He built a reputation as one of the rawest individuals in the history of surfing, and found competitive success while he was at it. He won three World Tour events in his career and finished 5th in the world in 1997. It’s safe to say that Hoy probably had more fun than anyone else in his era, enjoying everything opportunity that came his way. These days, Hoy’s got a family and kids and still enjoys life to the max. And of course, he’s still surfing with that classic rock n roll style.
