"Griggsy's knowledge, on all levels, is beyond anything i have experienced. I feel very ucky to have his wisdom in my corner." Owen Wright, ASP surfer

"I have known Griggsy for over ten years but worked closely with him for 5 years when he was the Pit Boss for Ripcurl. Griggsy is very knowledgeable about health and fitness and was awesome to work with on technique, heat tactics and coaching of surfing. His wisdom and professional attitude was a giant help with my 2007 World title campaign." Mick Fanning

 "Working with Matt Griggs for the last four years has been career changing. It's rare to meet someone that has that much experience that has a 360-degree vision with the sport of surfing. Matt's openness is what sets him apart because to be great at anything you have to be a great listener too. Everybody has what it takes, not everybody gives what it takes. Matt does!" Taylor Knox

 "Griggsy was such a big help in developing not just my awareness in performance, but also in myself. “ Stephanie Gilmore
