Firewire Machado Seaside Surfboard

Firewire Machado Seaside

The Seaside is about refining… less area in the tail, narrowing the tips of the swallow, creating more curve and narrowing the nose.

“ I actually redesigned my entire concave setup that I’ve been using on the Moonbeam and Go Fish, and did it with the quad setup in mind so that it all works together.”

What We Like

Pumping down the line is so fun on this board because of how fast you get going and how it keeps your speed over flat sections.

Jame Jenkins on Seaside air reverse

The Seaside made it possible to get down the line and make sections that we wouldn’t be able to make on other boards.

It’s so versatile in different conditions whether it’s the smallest day or head high barrels.

Insider Info

We rode the Seaside at waist high swimming pools in Fiji. The board generates so much speed on small waves its insane!

Jame Jenkins on Seaside turn

We also surfed it in 4-6 foot cloudbreak and it excelled there as well.

As soon as you stand up on the Seaside you can feel the speed and it is a really lively and loose board to maneuver.

We used the Futures Rob Machado Quad fins and they felt amazing.

Why You Want This Board:

You want a fast, versitle board to have a tone of fun on in small to medium surf. We would highly recommend the Seaside to everyone and we truly mean that. Get one in your size and you will have nothing but fun on it!

Review by James Jenkins

Firewire’s Description:

HEY ROB, WHAT IS THE SEASIDE..?

Just evolving the Go Fish to something new, really. The Go Fish goes fast and feels skatey and loose and I love it, and riding it for a couple years made me want to feel more high performance – more carves, tighter turns. So the Seaside is about refining… less area in the tail, narrowing the tips of the swallow, creating more curve and narrowing the nose. All elements for ripping while the Go Fish stays cruisey and fun.

The Seaside is quad only, why?

I decided that if i was going to make a quad I would make a quad that’s strictly a quad … Design the concaves and bottom contours around that. I actually redesigned my entire concave setup that I’ve been using on the Moonbeam and Go Fish, and did it with the quad setup in mind so that it all works together.

Why name this shape after your home break, Seaside?

Naming surfboards might be the hardest thing to do on the planet [laughing]. It’s just the perfect little stick when I surf my home spot, Seaside.

Why is the Seaside built in Helium?

The first one I made for Tahiti was LFT and I was riding it in 6 foot tubes. But most everyone surfs a shape like the Seaside at beach breaks and little point breaks, so we made it in Helium because it’s really light, very responsive, really flexy with a softer feel and very durable. It’s the best option for a shape like the Seaside in smaller, weaker waves, I think.
