MANERA's latest adventure movie 79°NORTH is out.WATCH THE MOVIE
Matt lives at the beach in the windy city of Cape Town, the perfect playground for a waterman.
He hardly spends a day without being on the water: He does kite, sup, surf, surf foil & downwind, with a great level in each discipline. And he still finds time to study industrial design!
STAY ON THE WATER.
My dad took me to Langebaan, South Africa when I was a kid and within a few days I was hooked. Since then, living in the wind magnet of the world, Cape Town, it has just been something that I struggle to go one day without.
I would buy kites for all the underprivileged children living in Cape Town so that they could learn to kite and use our wind to train everyday and become professional kiters.
Being woken up at 3AM in the Maldives to swim with whale sharks in the dark, in the middle of nowhere off a yacht.
I am either in the water foiling, SUP’ing or surfing, or I am at university studying industrial design.
