Watching the webcast of the Hurley Pro Trestles today none other than the peoples champion Rob Machado showed up to do some commentating of the contest. That reminded me of Rob’s killer foundation that is focused on teaching kids the importance of a healthy mother earth.
(Rob doing what he does best)
Rob Machado is not just one of the world’s greatest surfers; he’s one of the sport’s most recognizable characters, a living icon who continues to expand the definition of what professional surfing is all about. Known for his Zen-like flow both on land and in the water, Machado was consistently seeded at the top of the rankings as a competitor on the ASP World Tour. With 12 career WCT victories, Machado was ranked among the top ten surfers for eleven straight years and was inducted into the Surfer’s Hall of Fame in 2000 and re-inducted in 2006.
The Rob Machado Foundation (RMF) is a California based 501c(3) not-for-profit private foundation. Founded in 2004, RMF was created to support charities dedicated to environmental programs worldwide. Our primary mission is to provide funding and initiate educational programs focused on helping children understand their contribution towards a healthy earth.
