My journey from Czechia to extreme surfing in Spain

About the speaker

Matěj Novák is the first Czech to succeed in the field of big wave surfing, a name used for riding waves above 6 meter height. His love of the ocean led him to move to the Spanish coast, where he founded a community sports club WildHouse. The journey to conquering the famous “La Verdad” wave was documented in a movie “No wave back”. What obstacles did he have to overcome and what did the sea teach him?
