The latest release from Matt Meola is a reminder of the magic that can ensue when precocious talent meets the lofty breath of Maui winds. It’s a far cry from ‘traditional’ surfing and I’m sure there’s an onslaught of petulant purists ready to spit venom. But they matter about as little as the debate on which rotation to attach to that final hanger. The clip is raw, fast and above all, excites. It’s aerial surfing on a different level to all but a handful of surfers and that turn at 2:55 is a fucking convincing argument for slapping some front-grip on your sled.
