Full Part: Mat Galina

From Boardworld via Vimeo:

Mat Galina is possibly the hardest working snowboarder on the planet!

Mat 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.

Mat Galina is proudly supported by 3CS Outerwear, Radical Gloves, BeaverWax, Sandboxland, Rhythm Boardstore Cooma and Now Bindings.

Oi Mate! An Olliepop Films series, proudly presented by Boardworld.
