THE NEW ROB MACHADO & FIREWIRE QUAD FINS

Rob Machado presents his new Seaside Quad Bamboo fins. A new set of fins that expands Firewire’s accessory catalog. The original Machado Seaside Quad fins have been improved to be used on a greater number of quad-type surfboards. Today we’ll tell you about the main differences between this new version of fins and the previous Futures Machado quad fins model.

OPINION AND REVIEW OF MACHADO QUAD BAMBOO FINS

At Single Quiver, we are not Rob Machado, but we like to try all the equipment we sell in our SURFSHOP to advise you in the best possible way. Below we leave you our first impressions about Machado’s new fins.

 

In our upcoming video review, we’ll give you our opinion after testing these new Rob Machado fins alongside the Seaside and the CI Bobby Quad. Stay tuned to our social media channels, Instagram, Youtube, and Facebook, where we’ll provide our honest feedback on these new fins.

TECHNICAL FEATURES OF ROB MACHADO QUAD FINS

The front fins are slightly raked back, and the rear fins are slightly more upright than the original Machado Seaside Quad fins. This maintains the same carving characteristics of the original set but adds greater pivotability. This allows the surfer to place their back foot more freely on the tail without sacrificing carving ability or the ability to perform quick and pivot maneuvers. In addition, the new set’s front fins have less sweep, a fuller profile, and are stiffer than previous versions. The rear fins have more sweep, a fuller profile, and are slightly softer than previous versions. The weight of the entire set is 15% lighter than previous versions, with a weight of 0.6 pounds per set.

COMPARISON WITH THE ORIGINAL ROB MACHADO SEASIDE QUAD

If you remember, the original Machado Seaside quad fins were made with Performance Glass material. What happened to these fins? Do they disappear? If you remember, Firewire Surfboards announced that it stops working with FCS. This has accelerated the launch of a new collection of fins in collaboration with Rob Machado and Kelly Slater with Futures system. Or as they also call it, 1 Tab. In short, it’s not that the “original” Machado Quad fins are worse than these new Bamboo fins, it’s a strategic move by Firewire Surfboard to relaunch the sales of Firewire accessories, with new fins signed by one of the most beloved surfers in the surfing community.
