How I became The South Coast Kook

Hi everyone, I am Mat the South Coast Kook,


For those who don't know me, I am a former Coal Miner turned stay-at-home Dad, who found a passion in building a community by saving surfboards from landfill and turning them into Art with the help of the community and running a Surf based podcast that shines the light on legends in the industry that are connected by their love of catching waves.


I am a massive ambassador of mental health and a believer in salt water therapy, giving my time to One Wave as a Tribe leader at 7-mile Gerroa.

Through learning to surf in the past 6 years, I fully understand the frustration and confusion that comes along with this. That's why I created an E-Book, Do surfboard & product reviews without all the technical terms and manoeuvres for the average knockabout surfer (or ‘kook’ like me).
