Matt Wilkinson

Matt Wilkinson kind of slid onto the 2010 World Tour under everybody's radar. A couple years ago he was the toast of the town, then Owen Wright stepped into the spotlight ... which is probably okay with Wilkinson. Easily one of Australia's brightest prospects, Wilkinson possesses a unique blend of classic style and progressive power, capable of throwing down huge, full-rail carves and boosting freakishly high airs. The goofy-footed protégé originally hails from Copacabana, New South Wales, and like the rest of the Modern Collective generation, he's going to make his presence felt around the world in 2010.
