Biography: Matthew Pritchard (born March 30, 1973 in Cardiff, Wales), is a professional skateboarder and one quarter of the Dirty Sanchez crew, who have their own television programme on MTV.
When he was young, he allegedly enjoyed jumping out of his house window into several trees for fun. From here, he discovered he wanted to become a stuntman, an idea which didn't go well with his mother.
He began skateboarding at around the age of 15.
He is often seen as the founder of Dirty Sanchez, along with Lee Dainton, with whom he filmed the skating bootleg "Pritchard vs Dainton", where the two were in competition against each other at skating, as well as hitting and playing pranks on each other, the basis of the Dirty Sanchez programme.
Skateboarding still occupies a large part of his life. He works in a skateboarding shop, is a professional skater and performs several stunts using a skateboard in Dirty Sanchez (breaking it over Pancho's head or jumping with it over the other 3 guys)
Aside from his role in Dirty Sanchez, Matthew Pritchard is also one of the most famous skateboarders in Britain. He spent some time on the Blueprint skateboard team in the late 1990s before transferring to his current team, Death Skateboards. He had a small skateboarding role in Death Skateboards recent video release, Squadrophenia.
In addition to his sponsorship from Death, Pritchard is also endorsed by several other companies, namely Globe, Stimulus, Fury, Ricta, Von Zipper and Eastpak
