The Motor Boat by Rob Machado
Rob Machado wanted to bridge the gap between his Biscuit and Gravy, the Motorboat does that. Low entry rocker along with single to double concave with vee make this board really motor. Super fast and fun in flat faced waves, the Motorboat blends performance and volume into the ideal small to medium wave performance board.
Motorboats are built with either “Greenfoam” or recycled EPS, UV cure resins, and recycled fins, as Rob also wanted to make the Motorboat less impactful on the environment. A limited edition run of 75 boards signed by Rob are planned to have foam waste combined with concrete for water fountains commissioned by Rob’s foundation for schools.
Should be ridden approx. 4 inches smaller than your shortboard.
Knee to slightly overhead, novice to advanced surfers.3

For best results ride this board with the Merrick template—look for the hexagons.
