BLOOM is a high-performance flexible foam made from algae biomass harvested from freshwater sources throughout the world. The BLOOM Foam process:

 

• Helps improve the quality of waterways by removing excess algae that harms plants, animals, and people who rely on the ecosystem for survival.

• Recirculates fresh water back into the habitat.

• Aids CO2 capture and sequestration. We’re literally scraping pond scum, solar drying, and pulverizing it before foaming the material to create a pad that helps re-balance the natural ecology, and reduces our dependence on non-renewable oil.

 

Through this patented algae-technology, we have created a product with increased durability, improved shock absorption and reduced weight over conventional foams. The packaging is made with post-consumer backing, soy-based inks and a biodegradable wrapping.

 

By choosing this traction, you are helping make the world a cleaner place.

The GO PAD

 

Rob Machado’s Algae Traction for the Go Fish, the Seaside, and every other fast and wide fish you surf.

 

Designed by Rob to perfectly fit on the Seaside and Go Fish, either as a four piece flat pad with a tail kick, or a two-piece flat pad without a tail kick.

 

We’ve even worked with Rob to ensure the pad fits perfectly without obstructing the leash plug on both boards, regardless of size.

The 2 + 1

 

One pad for every board.

 

The two plus one can either be a two-piece flat pad or a three-piece flat pad, depending on how wide of a flat pad you want.

 

Inspired by the wide tails on Rob Machado’s more grovely board models, this pad works well on shapes like Rob’s Moonbeam or even wider tails like Dan Mann’s Chumlee.

 

Designed with square tread, it enables board feel with   extreme sensitivity; a favorite tread for surfers who haven’t traditionally loved traction.

Diamond tread. Wide arch. High kick.

 

The performance standard for shortboards.

 

Rob’s surfing has been most visible on the Go Fish with twin keels over the past couple years, but recently we’ve seen visions of him in competitive form, eerily similar to his days of competition on the CT, riding thrusters.

 

The three-piece arch pad is his choice in thrusters when he wants to, in his own words, ‘act like a professional surfer”.
