I know Matty won’t mind this story as he is a true Honey Badger of an Aussie who takes off deeper than anyone, despite a growing pile of old injuries. Unfortunately Matty’s face and the reef at Lance’s Left had a little tussle. When he came back on the boat he had a coral horn sticking out of one side of his forehead and a wound on the other side that reminded me of chainsaw gash, total hamburger. He was a great sport and all the boys on the boat were both helpful and funny as hell , which kept everyone laughing while I put him back together and dehorned him. While I worked I kept one eye on J.O.B getting pitted switch stance, as Lance’s left just kept getting bigger and bigger. One of the best moments of my life, sometimes everything comes together all at once.
ANY OTHER INFORMATION THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD ABOUT YOURSELF:
I can’t imagine a better day than catching some perfect waves followed by putting a fellow surfers face back on. They almost always buy you a beer afterwards.
