Hailing from Reunion Island off the coast of East Africa, it’s not uncommon to hear Rose switching from French to English without missing a beat. Don’t let her petite frame fool you, she’s got a sultry, soulful voice that’s been known to belt out tunes alongside father and pro-surfer, Rob Machado. Calling Encinitas, California home these days, Rose Machado is surf royalty and has been close with RVCA founder, PM Tenore and his family since birth. Rose is a modern Renaissance woman of many talents. Her passion for music, art and conserving the environment bring an authentic perspective to today’s RVCA woman. She’s a real tomboy at heart and believes that fashion fits should be more universal; that defying gender-based styles is the wave of the future. On any ideal week, you can find Rose training with her family, surfing in her secret spots or riding her bike to the local farmer’s market with her homies – all while sporting her favorite RVCA styles.
