The Inertia

Aside from being a personal friend and San Diego resident, Rob Machado is one of the most iconic surfers of our generation. The following images represent a selection of memorable moments linking up over the years. From the trademark style to the afro, Rob Machado is certainly singular in his approach to surfing. I hope you enjoy.
