Futures Fins Machado Quad
The Futures Fins Rob Machado Quad is a new edition to the Futures line for 2019. The Machado Quad was designed by Rob Machado himself to compliment his Firewire/Machado Seaside model, with small wave performance surfing in mind. The Machado Quad features an upright, pivot-style template, allowing this Quad Set to have a very tight turning radius. Surfers will notice quick response from the fins and the perfect combination of speed and control. The Honeycomb construction is wrapped in a black exterior graphic and cosmic inner graphic.

Futures Fins Machado Quad Fin Material
Honeycomb fins feature a lightweight hexagonal core gives fins the feel of glass-ons. Engineered with a medium flex pattern, Honeycomb is stiffer than Blackstix but more flexible than Fiberglass.

"Can not accurately judge"
- Lee H., Pensacola, FL on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 3

Height: 6'1"
Weight: 181 - 190 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Pensacola Beach, FL
Where did you surf these fins: Pensacola
Wave Height: 1 - 2 ft.
Wave Conditions: Fair
Misc. Wave/Location Information: N/A

Type of Board: SUP
Board Size: 8 ft. 6 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: N/A

Other Thoughts: I can not accurately judge these fins as my SUP quad is set up for very steep fast control conditions and the day I tried these fins was a small day.


"Worked Really Well"
- Steven D., San Francisco, CA on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 4.5

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 171 - 180 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Ocean Beach SF
Where did you surf these fins: Ocean Beach SF
Wave Height: 2 - 4 ft.
Wave Conditions: Fair
Misc. Wave/Location Information: Mainly Kelly's Cove. Summer Surf. Mixture of clean and mushy wind swell.

Type of Board: Shortboard
Board Size: 5 ft. 8 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: Summer board with wider tail and less rocker.

Other Thoughts: Worked really well in a traditional quad setup with the rear fins closer to the edge. I found that there was too much hold with the rear fins and swapped in a pair of 3.75 rears- Futures Fins Vector 2 Quad QI. This set up worked very well. IF stretch had a small rear set then this would be my choice setup.


"Plenty of Hold"
- Jared M., Oceanside, CA on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 3

Height: 5'11"
Weight: 151 - 160 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Oceanside, CA
Where did you surf these fins: South of the Oceanside Pier
Wave Height: 2 - 4 ft.
Wave Conditions: Good
Misc. Wave/Location Information: Early morning session. The waves were clean and walled.

Type of Board: Shortboard
Board Size: 5 ft. 7 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: Stock CI Neckbeard (PU) with squash tail

Other Thoughts: The fins have plenty of hold, but seemed to lack the drive I have gotten from other fins. I have a preference for lots of drive. This fin may be suitable for me in larger or more powerful waves, but for everyday conditions it feels like too much fin. Seems like the rear fins are relatively large. Smaller rears may loosen up this set.
