Rob Machado decided it was time to leave his comfort zone and find out what he was truly made of by traveling to Indonesia.
His six-month soul-seeking journey is chronicled through his journal, which forms the basis of his heart-felt narration in "The Drifter".
A beautifully shot, emotionally resonant film, "The Drifter" documents this major turning point in Machado's life, during which he comes full circle and ready to take on the next phase in a career in where he's blazed a path and sealed his legacy as not only one of the world's most stylish surfing ambassadors, but as a true humanitarian.
This is evident in the film itself, in which Machado helps fund (with help from his corporate sponsor Hurley) and construct a well for a remote village in Sumba - part of his Hurley H20 campaign. Film directed by Taylor Steele.
