Years of traveling the world’s best surf breaks have shown Rob Machado a unique perspective on what it means to be a global citizen, which he shares through various forms of expression. Whether through his surfing, art, activism or music, no former World Tour surfer embodies the complete soul surfer package like Cardiff, California resident Rob Machado.
Moving on from his days on Tour, Machado now surfs select events and spends most of his time advocating his non-profit organization, the Rob Machado Foundation. Established in 2004, the organization supports charities dedicated to environmental programs worldwide. RMF aims to provide funding and educational programs focused on helping children understand their part in shaping a healthy earth.
Machado is a living icon for the surf community, able to channel a powerful voice supporting community activism while continuing the evolution of the sport. Join the man himself on Wednesday (October 24, 2012) at Salvation surf shop in Malibu for a night of food, drinks, friends and good times. Donate to RMF and check out artwork by Rob himself.
