Matt was born and raised on the Island. Around 12 years ago he left teaching at Ryde High to run the family business in Wootton.
He is an avid surfer and is consequently passionate about our coastline, and what we are doing to look after it. We discuss the Plastic Free Coastline project, the economic value of water sports, and how individuals can make a difference.
