Matt’s coaching experience and interest is at elite level – and anyone that wants to be there. Initially grounded with professional surfers, having worked with former ASP World surfing Champions Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore – and many other contenders, Matt has an understanding of what it takes to live at that level and how to train it.
Matt is an elite coach only, coaching kids at, or looking to reach the elite level. To achieve this, Matt has in place a program that offers guidance and support in all areas of their technical, physical, tactical and psychological development. In this way, the program is holistic in nature and at its heart is a clear message that personal development precedes professional. Since Matt left the WSL World Tour, his high performance academy has grown to 50 plus members. Within the current group, there are competition winners at both state, national and international level. Everyone that joins gets a t-shirt, stickers + a high performance journal to document their learning’s as well as weekly program, including physical exercise/nutrition, meditation, technique, etc.
Physical (Movement and exercise / Nutrition / breathing / hydration)
Technical (Skill Acquisition)
Tactical (Goal-setting / programming / Contest preparation & strategies, building a support network & Resources)
Psychological (The Mind and Performance, Kelee Meditation)
This is not a surf school this is a High Performance Academy. You need to be in a board-riders club and already competing at regional level, with goals of elite performance. You don’t have to be amazing right now, Matt is more interested in people that want to be – and are willing to put in the work. This is not a surf school. Matt, Shane or Rach will be on the beach videoing; so all surfers need to be able to handle themselves in the water to a certain degree.

Working with Matt Griggs for over a decade 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!
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.
Griggsy’s range of knowledge is incredible. He’s got the knowledge on how to get to a World Title, but it’s beyond that. Things like nutrition, mentality, the mind and meditating. I can have a million things going on in my head, so meditating has helped to control that and see the things I need to focus on.
