Lift the lid on Matt Meola's creative mind as he gets country with his buddies - son's of legendary Willie Nelson - and sister, fires off airs in Maui juice and hunts and fishes for his dinners. Its a charmed life growing up on the islands and Matt and his crew take full advantage of the plentiful Hawaiian pleasures. "Every hunt is different" says Matt, "like every wave is different". Same could be said of Matt's surfing and if you want proof just check out the closing trick of the clip, Matt's very own "Spindle Flip."
Killer Surfing Hawaiian Style With Matt Meola
Matt Meola is one of a kind. Despite his small stature and friendly nature, the Maui born and bred surfer is a true wild man. In the water, he charges giant waves at Jaws and hucks gigantic airs over shallow reefs. When he's not surfing you'll find him dodging tiger sharks while spear fishing, hunting wild deer with his bow and arrow and playing country music on his guitar. Get to know Matt is this two part series. Part 1 focuses on his rise from unknown freesurfer to winner of the prestigious first "Innersection" project to his collaboration with friend Albee Layer on last year's landmark film "Attractive Distractions." Matt Meola Up Country is a raw, action packed, compelling look at one of surfing’s most interesting characters.
