About

Growing up in Jeffreys Bay it is unsurprising that Mathew McGillivray formed such a smooth style with a powerful rail game. Both of those facets came to the fore when the natural footer charged to the CT with an incredible finish to the 2019 QS season in Hawaii. McGillivray, relatively unknown to the surfing world and untested in Oahu, made the Final of the Hawaiian Pro then backed it up with a great performance at Sunset to clinch his spot for 2020 and finish in the fourth spot on the QS. Those performances proved that the South African was ready for the big time. Surf fans outside of South Africa may not have known a whole lot about him, but that was all about to change.
