Matt Meola is a surfer from Haiku Maui, Hawaii, who got Surfer Award for the best trick in 2019. Matt literally started surfing when he was 2 and now is famous for his insane style, love for big waves and crazy tricks.
We asked Matt about his favourite spots ever:
1. Lanes, Maui, Hawaii
It’s my home spot. Hard to surf but if you put in the time it offers up some crazy sections. Almost always has perfect air wind on it.
2. Hookipa, Maui, Hawaii
It’s where I surf when it’s not big enough for Lanes. Depending on the swell direction it has many personalities. Also usually good air wind on the left.
Check our forecast for the spot.
3. Windmills, Maui, Hawaii
When it’s windy it can be one of the best air waves in the world. When it’s glassy it’s a sick slabbing tube.

4. Greenbush, Indonesia
The most perfect left hand tube I’ve ever surfed. I dream of being back there.
Don't forget to check the forecast before you go.
5. Maliko, Maui, Hawaii
Scariest wave I’ve surfed. Got the wave of my life there. Some of the worst beatings too. Only breaks good once a year if you are lucky.
