We present a method for the generation of THz pulses with tailored temporal shape from nonlinear metasurfaces. The method is based on single-cycle THz emission by the metasurface inclusions. We show that the spatial amplitude and phase structure of the nonlinear response is mapped to the temporal shape of pulses emitted at certain angles. We specifically show a method for reconstruction of desired pulses, generation of few-cycles pulses with tailored carrier-envelope and all-optical control over the pulse shape by the pump pulse characteristics.
