You might remember Mat crossing a lake on a snowboard in one of the Oi Mate episodes. Besides those nautical skills Mat is also seriously good at sliding on pretty much anything.
Mat Galina backs up winters in the Southern Hemisphere to his homeland of Kelowna in Canada. Chasing the endless snow, Mat works full time as the lead Falls Creek Park Crew member during the season downunder.
This winter Mat set his sights high, crossing a 60 metre stretch of lake at over 80km/h, built run-ins that looked more like boarder-cross tracks and sent it on the largest gap to wall-ride feature the southern hemisphere has ever seen. Definitely worth a peep!
