Endurance - In addition to all of these things you’ve got going on. Last July you completed the brutal events continuous Deca Event (which is 10 iron man’s in 10 days), an absolutely incredible achievement. I’ve supported you and Adam (Matt’s brother) a few times in these endurance events, and seen you both literally put it all on the line.
I think from my perspective, when people ask me about it I can only ever say you really have to see it to believe it. The Deca is well up there as one of the ‘ultimate’ challenges in endurance races. I know you well enough to know you aren’t quite ready to slow down yet, so what’s next? Can anything really compare to completing a Deca?
At the moment I’ve got a fucked back after fracturing it falling skateboarding in Dubai which highly pissed me off. It was day 2 of the trip and I really started getting back into skateboarding.
I could feel it in my bones and mind. I hadn’t been on a skate trip for years and I was surrounded by skateboarders, Daint being one of them who I’ve been on numerous skate trips over the years along with the Forty’s skate co crew and Kris Markovich of all people............mental.
Anyway, my head was in a good place, skateboarding, mates, sunshine, unbelievable skateparks and a few beers at night with everyone and then i fucked it on day 2 so spent the rest of the trip at these ridiculous skateparks sat on my arse unable to do anything. I don’t do sitting down so i was chewing myself up inside although it was great seeing the others ripping especially Mark Burrows who is a 24/7 skate monster and all round lovely bloke.
