Rob Machado



Surfer, Machado is known for his casual, “laid-back” style both in and out of the water. Though he rides a modern tri-fin shortboard, he is still considered a “soul-surfer” largely because of his soft-spoken, humble personality and his disinterest in the spotlight, along with his fluid surfing style, which has earned him the nickname “Mr. Smoothy.” He is one of the best-known goofy-foot surfers in the world today. His style influences include Gerry Lopez and California’s Taylor Lobdell, who he saw surfing on a soft top at River Jetties in 2002 and has tried to emulate his style ever since.
