The 2013 Maquina is designed by the guys at RRD to take care of all your wave riding needs. As they say, it is an all-round wave board that offers you the power of control in real world conditions. The board feels very reliable from the first moment you set it on water and it is able to offer you that ultimate freedom you need to challenge and conquer waves.

It is designed using a classic pro surfboard shape which makes it stable, playful, powerful and easy to control. A wider tail with an increased tail kick assures perfect bottom turns and a clean water release. Top turns are also quick and controllable due to the use of a narrower nose. This makes the Maquina perfect for radical riders that perform advanced technical tricks.

An increased rocker assures optimal control and perfect speed and acceleration. It also allows the rider get on a plane easier. The board profile, featuring a constant flow from nose towards the tail, assures a powerful drive and smooth glide, even in less than ideal conditions. The wide squash tail and a generous rear width allow the rider to set his foot further back for a sharper and more precise turning performance.

The board is equipped with a thruster fin setup which makes it playful and fast but also adds extra grip when needed. The Maquina is built using a custom made PU/Bamboo/Carbon/polyester resin structure which provides optimal flex and response.

The 5'9 Maquina is a great all round board for mushy surf, medium waves and chop. It handles very well. Carves fast but not too tight, on a slightly wider radius. It climbs waves well and you can surf the face of the wave if you let go the power...more
