May sound like stupid question, but how is the Ocean Rodeo suppose to look when you have the strap on, should O.R. be righ side up when on your feet or upside down, right now they are upside down, this is the way it came to me.

Just a question for the OR Team….

Not that there is a front or back to the Mako Wide, but from a graphical standpoint there must be a bunch of Goofy foot riders and left point breaks up there in the NW….the way you have to orient the pads and straps.

If I rider regular foot and Right Point breaks in So-Cal….I am looking at the graphical back end of the board.  What’s up with that?  Not a big deal, but going against the grain a bit. LOL

We wanted to make the Makos feel “directional” this year as they are such a great wave board. I agree though that, due to insert location, goofy footed riders loose out on being able to ride the board “forward”

I suppose we could have looked at putting in extra inserts to give riders the option as to which way was “forward” but, as with everything, there would be added costs and this is a competitive industry!
