Sand in our toes, a cold beer in our hand and tight lines is our idea of a perfect day.
Whether you’re wading East Bay, stalking the flats, deep dropping the deep blue or sunbathing on the beach, Matagorda offers memories that will last a lifetime.
Our goal is to be a central part of those memories. Inspired by a simple concept; to provide a unique retail experience that focuses on quality brand partners and always put our customer’s experience first, Matagorda Outfitters was born.
Matagorda Outfitters co-founder and owner Thomas Davis spent his college years vacationing Matagorda Bay with his then girlfriend, now wife and co-founder, Kali Davis. Through the years a passion was formed for everything that makes Matagorda legendary and a concept formed of providing a unique experience to Matagorda. Thomas and Kali partnered with Tom and Susan Davis and in 2017 Matagorda Outfitters was born.
Our storefront is located in a rustic early 1900s building, what the locals call an abandoned general store, repair shop or skating rink, we proudly call home. Our shop is a small piece of coastal paradise that carries as much soul and character as the locals you will meet around town. We’ve never met a stranger and love the opportunity to meet new friends. Come on in, stay a while and if you catch the right day, you may just happen to see Max, the community favorite shop dog
Whether you’re shopping large national brands or Texas grassroots brands, odds are we carry it. When we started with our concept, the central focus was building relationships with all the local brands that call Texas home.
3 years later and we now call almost everyone of our brand partner’s owners a friend or family. Whether it’s sharing a cold beer on the dock, or playing bags on the beach, we take every opportunity we can to build lasting relationships with our partners we now call friends. You will frequently see collaborations, shared sponsored events and pop up shows that highlight our vast brand partner family.
Our brands partners are what make us able to be successful. So don’t forget to support all our great brands!
