Matta will shape and manufacture for SUPERbrand Surfboards in Europe

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 May, 2010 : - - Cardiff, California -- Today SUPERbrand proudly welcomes Portugal’s Nuno Matta as the European arm of the Shapers’ Collective. He joins Australia’s Adam 'Sparrow' Fletcher, Hawaii’s Matt Kinoshita, and the US’s Jason Koons in the Collective of board makers that progress surfboard design through cross-continent collaboration and idea sharing. 

In this new role, Matta will shape and manufacture for SUPERbrand Surfboards in Europe. He will also make boards for team riders when they come through Europe either on photo/video trips or with competition tours, and establish SUPERbrand distribution for the entire continent.

Matta is a good fit for SUPERbrand and the Shapers’ Collective. He is knowledgeable, organized, and well connected. Plus, he rips and likes to party! As one of the most progressive shapers in Portugal (and Europe), Matta works with the region’s top surfers, collaborates with premier shapers, and constantly improves the technical details of his boards.

Jason Koons of the SUPERbrand Shapers’ Collective said, “Europe has such a lively and progressive scene, and Nuno is at the forefront of that scene. The locals are great and the culture has so many similarities to our vibe at SUPERbrand. Our marketing and product angle is a natural fit for Europe, and we are stoked to contribute something fresh to this market.”
