Machado attended San Dieguito High School, and is known for his casual, "laid-back" style both in and out of the water. Though he rides a modern tri-fin shortboard, he is still considered a "soul-surfer" largely because of his soft-spoken, humble personality and his disinterest in the spotlight, along with his fluid surfing style, which has earned him the nickname "Mr. Smoothy." He is one of the best-known goofy-foot surfers in the world today.

There were some beautiful waves today. I can just sit here and watch it all day. It's an amazing place.

(Slater) called me this morning and told me to go right. But I wasn't buying it. I thought the lefts were better.
