Matt Formston: Surfing in the Dark

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 a world champion surfer. Discover how being vision impaired has made Matt who he is today.

This is the first book in the Big Visions series by Berbay Books, published in partnership with Vision Australia. The series depicts everyday Australian heroes living with blindness or low vision. Each book features braille alongside the conventional text and is designed to inspire conversations about inclusivity, representation and resilience.

Matt Formston – Surfing in the Dark is written by John Dickson, and published in Australia by Berbay Books in collaboration with Vision Australia.
