Liquid Imagery: Matt Archbold

By Nelly

When I was a grom, we all looked up to Archy. He was the most exciting surfer to watch. He gave the system the finger and rocked long hair and tatoos. He had  muscle cars before he even had a drivers license. Matt was at the forefront of the air revolution. Over the years I’ve been on a lot of trips with Archy, all of them classic and funny.
