The Story of Neso Tents

Based in beautiful Encinitas, California, we at Neso Tents are committed to designing innovative, portable, and lightweight beach products for your next sunny adventure. Our team is united in our love of the outdoors. We are friends, surfers, travelers, and hikers. Life happens outside. We share a commitment to taking care of our bodies and our planet, and most importantly we understand that time with our families is precious.

As an avid outdoorsman our founder, Matt Goldberg, was exposed to too much sun and diagnosed with early stage skin cancer. Matt was determined to maintain an outdoor lifestyle for himself and his loved ones while staying protected from the sun. Seeing a need for a safer experience at the beach, he wanted to create a better solution than the traditional sun umbrella.

Our signature product, The Neso 1, is a revolutionary beach tent that is anchored using natural resources such as sand or rocks.  The Neso Tent is a lightweight, portable, SPF 50+, water-resistant sunshade that provides a relaxing place to watch the waves, a soccer game, or have a picnic. 

Sold in 57 countries and counting, Neso Tents are the sunshades of choice for beachgoers, surfers, soccer moms, and camping enthusiasts. Our goal is to help people enjoy themselves, because ultimately that’s what life is about!
