Friend of Adeline Records, Rob Machado, was recently featured in C Magazine where he featured some of his photography and talks about the Rob Machado Foundation. Check out the blurb:
One of the world’s greatest surfers, Rob Machado is admired for his laid-back style both in and out of the water. Growing up in Encinitas, he learned to ride at Swami’s, a local break he still lives near and surfs regularly.
“It’s such a great wave and kind of a spiritual little place,” says the 12-time ASP World Championship Tour winner. The beach is so important that it inspired his newest T-shirt beneﬁtting the Rob Machado Foundation, which funds water awareness programs.
“Surﬁng dominates [my life], and in between is when I ﬁll in the blanks.” Not wasting a moment, the 39-year-old pro athlete is also an accomplished musician, ﬁlmmaker (Drifting Productions) and photographer. “I’ve been shooting for years and years. When I started going on tour at 17 or 18, I would take a different camera every year because I’d go to the same places. I’d take a ﬁlm camera, then a Polaroid, then a Super 8; I just tried to mix up and be inspired.”
