More from Rob Machado Surfboards
Rob Machado Surfboards was birthed out of the the surf experience of iconic surfer Rob Machado. He has always been known as one to carve his own path in the surf world, which his designs express. The Tom Taylor outline is reminiscent of the seventies boards ridden by Gerry Lopez with inspiration from Rob's fluid surf style and tube riding. Named because the shape has been ridden by both Tom Curren and Taylor Knox who both really love the board, the Tom Taylor is standard with a single fin box. The boards are designed and signed by Rob in Encinitas, California.
Proceeds from these boards go to the Rob Machado Foundation and its various programs focused on helping children understand their contribution towards a healthy earth. Rob Machado Surfboards is part of Groundswell Supply’s "High Five" program, whereby Groundswell will give back 5% to the foundation to continue their important work.

About Rob Machado SurfboardsRob Machado is not just one of the world’s greatest surfers; he’s one of the sport’s most recognizable characters, a living icon who continues to expand the definition of what professional surfing is all about. Known for his Zenlike flow both on land and in the water, Machado was consistently amongst the top seeded competitors while on the ASP World Tour. With 12 career WCT victories, Machado has been among the elite top ten most popular surfers since 1996 on Surfer Magazine’s Surfer Poll and was inducted into the Surfer’s Hall of Fame in 2000 and reinducted in 2006. In 2009 he was awarded the prestigious honor of Waterman of the Year by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) and in 2001 the City of Huntington Beach California awarded him with a star on the Surfing Walk of Fame.
His contribution to the sport extends far beyond his accolades in a colored jersey. Since his departure from the ASP tour in 2001, Machado has been one of surfing’s most committed ambassadors, roaming the globe, surfing the world’s best waves and deepening his commitment to support various humanitarian and environmental organizations.
In 2004 Rob established The Rob Machado Foundation to provide funding and initiate educational programs focused on helping children understand their contribution towards a healthy earth. More information on programs can be found at www.RobMachadoFoundation.org
