Rob Machado Midas Surfboard

The general idea is that you have 2 boards working in your favor. The ‘inside’ outline creates a flat bottom concave that runs all the way off the tail, while the two side panels that run down each rail change from concave to flat to Vee, while still maintaining a deep single concave down the middle. The overall effect is increased performance and speed.

Rob Machado Midas 5'8 x 19 1/2 x 2 5/16 Surfboard

The outline of the MIDAS evolved from a few different influences. The tail was inspired by some 80’s twin fins and the wing is positioned right behind the trailing edge of the side fin to create a break point, and to pull the tips of the swallow closer together for maneuverability. The wing also creates more width in front of the fins which generates increased speed. The nose is a touch wider than your everyday short board but without an ‘eggy’ feel. The wider nose and tail dimensions reduce the curve in the middle of the board which also helps generate speed. Perhaps the most interesting design feature are the new bottom contours I’ve been working on which I’ve called “BOARD EAT BOARD”. The original concept began years ago when I rode one of George Greenough’s edge boards which led me to a whole new approach to bottom contours and edges. I made quite a few boards until I finally adopted this new bottom. The general idea is that you have 2 boards working in your favor. The ‘inside’ outline creates a flat bottom concave that runs all the way off the tail, while the two side panels that run down each rail change from concave to flat to Vee, while still maintaining a deep single concave down the middle.
