How To Rip Into Your Forties, With Matt Hoy

We’re all getting older. You know it. We know it. Stevie Nicks knows it. That’s just the nature of time, baby.

As bones begin to rot, joints start nagging and skin gets weathered, there are different theories on how to age well and keep ripping into the later decades of your life. Some stretch all day. Eat healthy. Go to bed at 10, wake up at 6. You know the drill.

Then there’s Matt Hoy.

Hoy’s made a career out of living fast. He was once ranked Top 5 in the World and indulged in all of the extra-circular activities available to a professional surfer along the way. Oh, weren’t the 1990s special?

Here’s a quick clip of Hoy, who is soon to be 47, going HAM on a recent trip to the Mentawai Islands. Maybe the secret aging well is living like Hoy.

Well, there’s only one way to find out.
