Staying Home w Matt Bevilacqua

Where have you been spending your time and who with?

I’ve been spending a lot of time with my partner Brielle, doing some DIY stuff at home and lots of bike rides catching up with mates for coffee and smoothies.

How have you been keeping Active?

Surfing mostly. I bought a new ocean ski, and paddling those well is a skill within itself that I have always wanted to master, so I have been doing a few paddles on that. I have also just been doing a couple of long runs a week, as well as some ocean swims on some nice days up and down the GC.

What has a ‘normal’ day looked like?

A very typical day has involved riding down to the local café and seeing the boys briefly for a take away coffee. Surf check followed that, and we’ve been lucky enough to have some consistent surf on the GC the last month or so. Then back home to possibly go for a run in the afternoon or paddle downwind if the wind gets up. Into the kitchen for the evening sometimes to cook up a storm.. Nailed a 10hr slow cooked lamb shoulder the other day.

Short term goals?

Learn to paddle the new ocean ski efficiently and effectively.

Finish my book. ‘The People Smuggler’

Nail a slow cooked Beef Brisket

Finish the backyard area.

Any new hobbies?

I don’t really do much surfing during the year while training so I can definitely call it a hobby now.

Reading and cooking I haven’t been doing before Covid-19 either.

Bit of a green thumb too. I got a few new plants that look good and haven’t died so I’m proud of that.

What are you most excited about doing again?

Absolutely ripping into training and getting nervous to race again. I love that feeling.

The Last Dance

The Test
