Marcelo Matos was born in Uruguay and raised in a small coastal village. In the middle of the 80s with the help of his neighbour Yama they started making their own surfboards with old and recycled pieces of surfboards foam.

At the end of the 80s his friend Fabricio and him wrapped a camera with a plastic bag and tape to take their first surf photo. Matos got obsessed and passionate about surfing and promised himself to find a place where he could live and surf everyday.

After entering a competition back home and having his own surfing tv show Matos finally made his dream come true when he moved to Costa Rica in 2001. Shortly after arriving, him and his girlfriend started taking photos and thats when Matosfilms was born. After repairing a few surfboards to some tourist and teaching a few others the basics of surfing, MatosFilms became Matos Surf Shop.

Today with 2 locations, Tamarindo and Playa Grande, Matos surf shop offers a fully stocked surf shop. From begginners to Pro, we have whatever a surfer needs and more.
