Surfing in the Dark: Matt Formston

Matt Formston always dreamed of becoming a professional surfer. But by the time he was five years old, he was almost completely blind. Matt never let that stop him. Now he is a record-holding cycling Paralympian and world champion surfer. Discover how being vision impaired has made Matt who he is today.

Just one in a series of three biographies written by Vision Australia, all with successful Australian’s living with blindness or low vision at their heart. Giving Australia three new role models who are determined, resilient, successful and blind. True stories to empower new perspectives of what is possible to build true inclusivity through belief.

Written by John Dickson, illustrated by Philip Bunting and read by Matt Grainger
