Enjoy a smooth ride on the Almond Butter Surfboard from the mind of Rob Machado and our friends at Firewire. Uniquely stylish and incredibly talented, Rob has always been known as one to carve his own path in the surf world. The Almond Butter surfboard simply says FUN all over it. With a full mid section, pinched nose and tucked tail, this free surf creation is not only multifaceted but has a more forgiving design which allows for growth and progression for intermediate surfers.
Working with Hawaiian artist Sig Zane, Rob has released a special collaborative version of the Almond Butter. The nature inspired design was pulled from the flora and fauna of the islands and then worked out between Rob and Sig as board art. The Almond Butter has a pattern they have dubbed Uluwehiwehi. Literally translated to "verdant beauty, lush, thriving" while figuratively meaning "growth, inspiration".
Offered in lightweight TimberTek construction, the Machado Almond Butter is an everyday template that will excel in 3 to 6 footers, but can handle well in up to over head hollow conditions. A classic short board design with Rob's own special sauce makes this a fun board for any surfer and with a 5-fin setup, the possibilities are endless. Slip into some fun on the Almond Butter!
"The icon of a bread fruit leaf indicates our foundation born from nature . In Hawaiian practice, the breadfruit is often the first design the crafts-person learns, carrying forth the deeper significance of heritage and inspiration. Customary also is the gifting of this tree to a newborn so that he/she will have food for life. It is the beginning of a new journey and we offer breadfruit as a wish for growth and inspiration. The Symbol shall carry forth our dreams of a fruitful life, inspired by culture and tradition." - Sig Zane/Rob Machado

CONSTRUCTION TimberTek Construction
Firewire's TimberTek construction represents a significant step forward towards the holy grail of any product designed and manufactured in today's environmentally conscious world. Firewire's TimberTek has by far one of the least toxic and smallest carbon footprints of any commercially available surfboard today. The combination of a lightweight EPS core, sustainably-grown Paulownia wood deck skins, Firewire's proprietary parabolic rail construction, and an Entropy bio-resin hot coat yield an extremely lightweight, durable surfboard with ALL of the high performance flex characteristics of Firewire's existing technologies.
