Matt Banting really is about to get his first taste of living fast in the world’s highest level of competitive surfing. 2015 is gonna be the best kind of blur for the kid, but while most rookies show up to their first event with a wobbly jaw and star blinding each eye, Matt wears only rose-coloured lenses and a leisurely grin. Noteworthy facts? He isn’t trying to grow up too fast. He’s enjoying the ride. And, he’s a beast of consistency. This edit, from Jimmy Graham, is part message to future opponents, part re-introduction to the world, and top to bottom surfing fire. It’s gonna be a good year.
