Matt Mingay

HOMETOWN: Gold Coast, Queensland
DAY JOB: Professional Stuntrider and Action Sports Athlete
RIDING / DRIVING SINCE: Pro since 1997. I entered and won an Australian Stunt Riding Comp on my motorbike and ended up quitting my Motorbike Apprenticeship to follow my dreams. It's hard work and I honestly work 7 days a week but I love what I do and the people I meet on the way. I'm incredibly grateful thats for sure
FAVOURITE TRICK: Knee scraping wheelies and rubbing panels with Kents drift car
HOBBIES: Boxing, drifting, stunting, jetskiing, boating, chasing my 2 kids on mini bikes, Polaris off-roaders… and snail farming
IN YOUR iPOD: Flume, Bliss n Eso and Roxette
TASTIEST FOOD: Definitely Chicken Palmy's. My wife always says im going to turn into one one day lol. Oh and cheesecake. Don't ask me to share or its a flat out NO!
BIGGEST CRASH: Crashing my SST in Detroit wins hands down. It ripped open my jaw shattering all my jaw and mouth bones, I also lost 9 teeth, fractured my T1, had bruised lungs and a traumatic brain injury. It took 18 months to re-build my mouth so I could finally get a new set of pearly whites and enjoy a steak! God it was good too.
