Tele - Gonna have to say that you might be getting told some 1/2 truths? We have been scrambling - just scrambling - to keep up with the demand for the Mako Wide. We only this past week got our latest shipment of the boards in so there is no way it could have been shipped earlier. The only thought I have is that Lars was told the boards were on route to us? Once we receive them we need then turn them around to you.

Anyway, the good news is this: 1) boards are in stock (as are the new pads and straps for the upgrade crew). 2) Your board has shipped (I am on the road but know we did a European shipment on Friday) and 3) (for the rest of you) We have a ton more of the boards arriving next week so all back orders will be taken care of with the shipment we just got and we will actually have some extras too!

Well maybe there is some mixup then to what-is-shipped-to-where. It could possibly be that I told him I wanted it with the new pads. He most def said that if i would seetle with the old pads I could get the board almost within a few days but with the new pads it would be some 2 weeks delivery time, but even so it should have been here two weeks ago. Well, what the heck, I been waiting until now so one week more will not make much difference.

It realy would have been nice though to have the board by the weekend. Will be tough i recon :( . My mom is paying a rare visit (she lives 500 km away) and you guys with a 11 month toddler knows that is a nice opportunity to get in some unlimited play raspberry and the missus is realy fast to snipe the Mako std from me 8).

Yeah man, I am really sorry you’ve been waiting so long. The board is sweet though and I am sure you’ll love it when you have it!

Apparently my lux pads are in, but there was mix up and I didn’t get the straps yet, how do I put the old straps on with the new pads, may make sence when I see it but I tought the new straps had a special attachment.

We can sell you the new straps too but your existing straps work just fine, the only difference between the 2 is the new 90° plastic piece which makes them easier to bolt onto the boards.

screws for the straps

I just got my new mako wide , I try to fix the pads and straps on but it looks like the screws provided are short. There is only one thread that can make it through.

If I were to buy some brass screws to use what size would work in the mako wide inserts?

screws for the pads and straps

I finally managed to fix my straps , you need to put much pressure to squeeze the foam ,  I was doing the work on a table and could’nt put the pressure required. I shaved the tip of the melted webbing to make it flush with the pad but maybe it wasn`t necessary.

So kiter 86 you will not need screws unless you’ve lost yours , at this point I could dismount one of mine and give you the size , All I know they are metric.
