The surname Stewart is known by just about every Bodyboarder on the planet, a name synonymous with pushing the boundaries of our sport, however the Stewart we feature today goes by the name Matthew Stewart, also known as The Silver Bullet. Matthew Stewart, also likes to push boundaries, charges hard and gets his nickname from his trademark silver Gath helmet he wears as he takes down some horrendous looking waves.
The clip below this article of The Silver Bullet in action is not for the faint hearted and is of a session at Shipsterns Bluff, where we see a ratio of 1 rideable wave to 4 severe beatings. With the heart of a lion and what must be the lungs of a killer whale, Matthew throws himself wholeheartedly into the session and the mesmerising and haunting images will send a tingle down your spine – guaranteed.
At just under 3 minutes long, the clip filmed by Simon Treweek, Gonor Hegyi and Tyge Landa, certainly made me sit up and pay attention and it was too good not to share it with our followers. Enjoy the video below and let us know if you would throw yourself into waves like this to get your thrills?
