Sports + Adventure

Matador brings you adventure sports and the athletes that inspire us, whether it’s an extreme sports pro, or someone just getting started kayaking, surfing, or on the road, learning how people play in other countries.

We follow events that bring the entire world together like almost nothing else can, such as the World Cup, as well as tightly-knit local events such as the Green Race that exemplify how entire communities can develop around a certain place and sport.

Matador has members who run surf camps and others who teach people how to paddle. We have climbers, mountaineers, long distance cyclists, and soccer players. No matter where and how people play, we’re always looking to try it out and share it.
