At thirteen he had his first contact with the world of surfboards, setting up his first repair shop. Shortly after, around the year 90, he began to make the first Slash boards. That same year Marcos met Luis Rodríguez, an Argentine shaper based in Europe. It is Luis who would be the brand’s shaper during this first season. At this time Marcos was in charge of the glass and the sanding of the boards.
In 95 he traveled to Redondo Beach (California) to work at Roland Surfboards.
On the way back Marcos begins to shape all the Slash boards (MSD). The great local success soon sparked national interest.
In 2004, Marcos travels to Australia, where he would meet Simon Anderson. After sharing many hours of shaping and studying their boards a lot, Marcos and Simon reach an agreement to market Simon Anderson Surfboards in Spain. It was a resounding success.
At the same time, Marcos began to study design programs for numerical control machines and bought his first preshape machine. The incorporation of these new technologies helped to further improve the quality of the boards.
Marcos is currently a recognized shaper in Europe, manufacturing boards for Spain, France, Portugal and South Africa.
For Marcos it is essential that the shaper be a good surfer and the best connoisseur of his models. That is why he tries very hard to keep his surfing level up to date. It is famous for its high demands on shapes and finishes. Marcos reviews all the tables that come out of the factory personally.
In 2012, Marcos joined the JETSON project with the task of designing specific shapes for motorized tables.
After 31 years in the sector, he continues to pour out the same illusion as the first day in what I never doubt would be his passion for life:
