Notable:
Matt's vert skating outshined his park skating during the 2000 season. He remains optimistic on his overall drop of his competition results and can still show up to a competition impressing the crowd with sick tricks like his "Monster Sevens" on vert. His lack of sponsorship has brought him back to his soul skating attitude of skating for himself.

Quote:
After losing his skate sponsor: "Actually, it's a really good thing that happened. It brought me back to where skating is real again. I guess I took them for granted. In the back of my mind I thought I was always secure."
