Growing up by the coast Matt has always had a passion for the water. Through this passion he can often be found in the sea, surfing or in the pool swimming. Matt has played water polo at county level and regularly competes in surf lifesaving for a club at his local beach. Other interests include climbing and triathlons which Matt hopes to continue whilst living in Malaysia. Surfing has taken Matt to many places around the world but never to Asia. Here he hopes to travel, explore new places and meet new people.
