Rated as one of the most talented junior surfers in the world, the young upstart was able to put his equipment through its paces in a solo session he won’t be forgetting any time soon. In Mateu’s words, “It’s a good wave to do whatever you want.

The son of Alexandre Herdy and the nephew of Guilherme Herdy, both former pro’s and surf legends in Brazil, Mateus was in Europe for the first time competing in the World Surf League’s WQS in Zarautz.
