Matt Pagan Surfs Pretty On Pink
Girl board. Man turns.
It takes a bit of gumption to ride a pink surfboard. Think about Luke Davis, Jamie O’Brien, and Christian Fletcher – all of them ride pink boards from time to time, and all of them exude a surplus of eccentricity.
But Matt Pagan doesn’t fit in with the names mentioned above. He’s not as glitzy as Luke, not as free-wheeling as Jamie, and he’s way more Christian than Fletcher. All in all, Matt’s just a nice guy/talented surfed who likes the color pink. And if we’re being honest, his board’s rosy tone adds a much-needed pop to those windswept Hawaiian walls. So we’re backing it.
Plus Matt can really swing that Jon Mangiali (with Matt’s assistance) hand-shape.
