Matty Cook is taking himself and the Shoes emblem global by entering the ASP Longboarding Qualifying Series for 2011.
The move follows Matt’s win in the 2010 Cronulla Long Boarding A Division and beating State and Australian champions a long the way.
He will be competing against the top professional longboard surfers from around the world, and have the chance to qualify for the World Championships in Hawaii later in the year.
Events on his radar include:
Hyundai Pro Longboard, Sandy Bay, Whangarei, New Zealand
Golden Breed Men, Noosa Heads, QLD, Aus
Malfuncton. Kingscliff, NSW, Aus
Whalebone Classic, Perth, WA, Aus
Matty will be updating his adventures on his website: cookielovesit.com
“I’m really excited and will be doing my very best to rip it up and get super radical on the malibu, yieeeww!” comments Matt.
Ian McDonald, a veteran of the longboard and a rising surf photographer, has this to say about one of Shoes’ best riders: ” Longboard/Shortboard – that’s got to make you one of the best all round surfers in Cronulla, there’s not too many that can do both.”
Ian’s right. Cut loose Matty, for Shoes and yourself. All members wish you well on the tour.
