The Midas Surfboard by Rob Machado is the Swiss Army Knife of surfboards. It truly is remarkable in its ability to grovel in the smallest of waves as well as be able to hold properly in good waves. It has worked for me in everything from 1-8 feet, small and slopy to draining barrels. Some of Rob’s models have more notoriety but this is a secret weapon!!! The Midas also works for all skill levels, a beginner will find it easy to paddle and catch waves on. The board will give an expert surfer a spark to draw different lines and put an extreme amount of “fun” back into everyday surfing. I have never had a board that covers almost every type of wave condition, its range is truly remarkable. It is my favorite board model in his line, also the epoxy blank and glassing have been incredibly durable. After 4 years I am still riding mine, never had a board last this long!!!
