MATTA - SIERRA KERR

SIERRA KERR SURFING WITH MATTA SURFBOARDS

MATTA - SIERRA KERR

Sierra Kerr Surfing with MATTA Surfboards

With only 10 years of age Sierra Kerr, daughter of the WCT surfer Josh Kerr, is probably the most talented girl both on surfing and skating.

Last October, during the last stop of the WCT event in Portugal, Sierra surfed with a MATTA surfboard – SMP model. Right after Portugal she was invited by Kelly Slater to test his new wave pool, where she surfed with the same MATTA surfboard. Now she’s in Hawaii, following her father on the Pipeline Masters and again she was surfing with the SMP. Incredible to watch how this same model fits all kind of surf conditions.

“I didn’t know Sierra personally and I was already a huge fan. It’s incredible to see the surfing skills of Sierra in such a young age. Finally I got to meet her and after shaping some boards to her father, Josh Kerr, I also shaped a surfboard for Sierra. I chose the SMP model because this model perfectly suits her surfing skills and it’s great to see that she liked it and that she’s using the same board everywhere she’s going.”, said the shaper Nuno Matta.

MATTA x ORLANDO SANTOS LIVE

MATTA & ORLANDO SANTOS LIVE IN LISBON

Live Shaping and Music in Lisbon with Nuno Matta & Orlando Santos

People walking by Ribeira Das Naus in Lisbon city center, beside Tejo River, could watch an incredible live performance with the shaper Nuno Matta and the musician Orlando Santos.

Everybody knows that shaping a surfboard is just like an artist doing any kind of piece but normally the shaper do it on a shaperoom with no eyes on him. This time was different, Nuno Matta built a shape room on the street and invited the well none musician Orlando Santos to get more inspiration and to create a completely different environment to every present person.

The art of shaping walks together with music and when you combine this two arts, in the middle of an historical place, the result is unique and amazing.

CLASSIFIED - SECRET FILES by MATTA

CLASSIFIED - SECRET FILES by MATTA

The shaper Nuno Matta launched a new project to continue to develop and upgrade the performance skills of his surfboards, Classified - Secret Files, it’s a secret program where innovations and new techniques are used to create new models from the knowledge and creativity of the shaper tested by the best surfers to get the final inputs. The final model just get public when the new shape fits all the needed requests from the surfers.

“With this new project I bring MATTA surfers for the leading role of the shaping process, I want them to get involved with the brand, bringing new inputs to the production line, and together we’ll better answer the present demand.”, said Nuno Matta.

For Justin Becret: “To improve our surfing we also need to improve and try different shapes to better match the different conditions we might get while competing. I’m looking forward to start with this new project where I’ll also be able to give the needed inputs to get the best shape. My new test model is just arriving, so let’s start with it.”

“The relationship with the shaper it’s crucial to get the best surfboard on my feet, with Nuno Matta the communication have always been easy and now I feel even more confident for being able to test and to give my feedback before the surfboard goes to the market.”, said Sam Piter.

At the moment MATTA counts with near 20 different models to better answer all kind of demands, but in the near future more models will be available with the quality label given by the committee, MATTA Team Riders, from this Classified Project.

Stay tuned, more news about the Classified - Secret Files by MATTA very soon.


MATTA x FRANKIE CHAVEZ

Searching for the Perfect Shape with Nuno Matta & Frankie Chavez

What happen when you join one of the most recognized musicians among the surf community with one of the most recognized shaper?

For sure you wished to have your surfboard being shaped at the bay during that moment because the scenario was idyllic both to Nuno Matta and to Frankie to push the most for their art.

Frankie Chavez’s music mixes different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic rock n roll. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences (Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Kelly Joe Phelps, Ry Cooder) it’s hard to define his music in a single word.

If you enjoy the Art of Shaping sit back and enjoy this amazing video produced by GO-S.TV where you’ll see a shaping room like you have never seen before.

SMARTech included on the Sustainable Surf

 

MATTA SMARTech surfboards included on the Sustainable Surf Program

Sustainable Surf is a non-profit charity organization based in California, founded by entrepreneurs Michael Stewart and Kevin Whilden, their mission is to be the catalyst that transforms surf culture into a powerful force for protecting the ocean playground.

MATTA is the new partner of the ECOBOARD project program, a project that helps the board riding community to build, buy and ride high-performance sustainable boards. A social transformation program, which educates and engages individuals about the environmental impacts of their lifestyle through the lens of their board. ECOBOARD project is focussed on reducing carbon footprints, increasing the use and reuse of renewable, recycled and recycled inputs, and reducing toxicity within the manufacturing process.

All the MATTA SMARTech surfboards will be marked with an “eco-label” from Sustainable Surf that guarantees that you are using an ECOBOARD.

For some time that Nuno Matta is focus in recycling projects in his factory. You can find all kind of waste on a surf factory. To have a new surfboard a track of waste is left behind, just need some creativity and environmental care to make use of those waste materials.

Besides the SMARTech ECOBOARDS, It’s already known the recycling program used by MATTA, by collecting waste EPS Foam to pack the boards and to turn it directly into a new surfboard blank.

There’s also the Upcycle Surfboard by MATTA for Vissla where Nuno built a surfboard from trash with plastic bottles, milk packs, cardboard box, EPS box, newspapers, trash fiber and resin from the rack. This recycled surfboard was finalist of the Vissla Creators Contest and the surfboard was exposed on the Prize Ceremony in California: MATTA for Vissla

As a member of the Sustainable Surf, MATTA aims to spread the word for the protection of the Oceans. So all MATTA surfboards with SMARTech construction have a Sustainable Surf ECOBOARD label that guarantee that the SMARTech surfboard follows an ecologic method approved by Sustainable Surf Organization.

You can find all kind of waste on a surf factory. To have a new surfboard a track of waste is left behind, just need some creativity and environmental care to make use of those waste materials.
It’s already known the recycling program used by MATTA, by collecting waste EPS Foam to pack the boards and to turn it directly into a new surfboard blank.

But more can be done and with that in mind Nuno Matta start looking at his factory to get ideas for the booth furniture, that needed to be set up during last month event Caparica Primavera Surf Fest, and for the trophies for the Caparica Pro WQS and European Pro Junior.

So, Nuno start collecting waste materials in his factory and turned fiber cardboard rolls and pallets into a table; made another table from a resin drum; made two seats, one from a wasted tail foam and the other from a diluent drum; and the events trophies were made from broken surfboards.
