If you haven’t yet heard the story about the person who approached Rob Machado one day at the airport, moments after he got off of a plane from Mexico with Pat O’Connell, then you haven’t yet heard one of the most memorable tales of hilarity that a pro surfer has ever told.

We were shocked when we heard it.

So was SWITCHFOOT.

You can listen to this episode featuring Rob and his longtime friends right here.

Hang with Hendo – a huge human who rips.

Hendo surfs a Cymatic and a Seaside. Baked Potato and Evo as well.

He is also one third of Pro-Lite, a company that makes what many of us at Firewire think are the best surfboard bags on the planet.

He describes himself as a Human V who also look(s) like a bell’ and literally cannot wear a suit because of his ‘inseam of a guy who’s maybe 5’6’ and his ‘torso of a guy who’s maybe 7’2’.

This episode is a must listen for anyone who enjoys breaking down or dialing in boards, and it’s also for enthusiasts of sustainable materials in surfboard production and surf accessory production, because Hendo discusses how Pro-Lite uses recycled plastic bottles in select Pro-Lite bags, something Slater Designs does in production of the Slater Designs Leash.

Listen here.

The Slater Designs Leash – made using plastic bottles, just like some Pro-Lite board bags. Press the image to listen to this episode.
