Matt Pallet can surf. He can also make movies. Here he combines these two talents, with help from a range of videographers, to sum up an amazing year for him across the board.

A little insight: "The video started when I got the clip of the air at the end with the sunset colours, I saw it and decided to try to make a cool video, the next day I got a few clips and then about 2 months later I filmed again in Durban and got the alley oop clip and a few others, but the day after that is when the "curse of the video" started. The last year has been soo much fun but every time I had the chance to film we either got skunked, or I broke boards, or clips were missed, or I would get a fin cutting my arm to the bone or a board hitting me in the mouth and breaking my teeth or I wouldn't be able to film for long periods of time for multiple reasons, I even got arrested for surfing in brown water!? I still don't understand that one. But anyway, thats all my excuses as to why there aren't any clips of some amazing sessions I had this year.

And the moto stuff ... I learned how to ride bikes in the last year, almost exactly a year ago actually, and I started riding dirt bikes in about February, and I fucking love it, so I filmed some stuff in the dunes for a few days and got Calvin to bring his drone for 2 days, pretty hard to figure out what looks cool and stuff like that but I think we got a few cool shots. I hope you enjoy the video. For more go to improperproductions.com"
