Matt grew up in Asia and the UK, giving him a vast experience in travel, cultures and hospitality. After graduating college with an HND in Hotel and Hospitality Management, he set off around the world chasing his passion of working in and around the water sports industry. He became a PADI Dive Instructor, RYA Yachtmaster, Level 2 IKO Kitesurfing Instructor and RYA Windsurfing and Sailing Instructor, and has set up and run watersports resorts and schools around the world.
