Rob Machado's surfing interests wander all over the map, from WCT performance surfing, to fast, fishy, floating, to cruisy carves on craft both large and small. There's no surprise then, that Rob's got several traction pad models to fit his surfing mood, and this, the Firewire Machado 3-Piece Arch Traction Pad, is for when he (or you) pulls out the ripping machine. A narrower width, arch bar, and high, steep kicktail all lend this pad to serious shredding on a competition/thruster/etc.-style board. Or use it wherever you want; Rob's never been one to adhere to a stereotype.
The real story here is in the materials. Algae Foam is a high-performance flexible foam made from algae biomass harvested from freshwater sources throughout the world. Harvesting the algal blooms that make up Algae Foam results in cleaner water and air. You'll not only be ripping, but making the world a safer place.
