When Al and Rob get together, the possibilities are endless. Al steering Rob to a more conventional board, and Rob taking Al back in time, a direction he doesn’t always want to go. Reminiscent of Rob’s Biscuit model, The Gravy is shorter and wider than a normal shortboard, but with the addition of a few more performance characteristics. A more foiled and slightly narrower outline with a touch more rocker and fresh new look. With the nose width matching the tail width, not only are small waves fun again, but you can also still tear into them.
This board should be ridden approximately 4″ to 6″ shorter, / 8″ thicker, and about an inch wider than your normal shortboard.
Machado’s dimensions are 5’3 1/2″ x 19 1/4″ x 2 1/4″.
Check Rob riding his in his movie, The Drifter.
Ideal Wave Size
Novice to expert and small to overhead waves.
For best results ride this board with the Merrick template—look for the hexagons.
