Mark Mathews

As one of the world’s most committed heavy-water surfers, there isn’t much out there Mark Mathews hasn’t done. Quietly spoken but calculated, Mark Mathews is more than a big wave surfer: he’s an innovator, a motivational speaker, television personality, and soon-to-be-author to boot. He instantly captures audiences with his epic tales and spectacular ocean-themed adventure simulations.

Obsessed with the relationship between personal growth, high performance and fulfillment, Mathews is on a mission: Offer game changing ways to adapt to stress and increase wonder in the lives of others.

As one of the brains behind Red Bull Cape Fear, the Maroubra product has helped big wave surfing emerge from the shadows of its world tour counterpart to become a stand alone attraction in its own right – thanks largely to his dedication to filming deep inside the world’s most dangerous waves at the cost of his own well-being. Mark Mathews is nothing if not an innovator, in every sense of the term.
