“To set the record straight I like using Matt Skinner much better, but if you want to call me Matt Skinner the Scam go for it. I think I’m getting ripped off but what else is new, my focus is the Olympics. Being still an alternate, I can’t help but know in my heart, I am destined for gold. And my hopes are this, if there is a chance that I can step up and surf, that I could bring home Gold for us, but this week I’m concentrating on the Sydney Surf Qualifier.”
