Just thought I’d share an experience I’ve been having.
I’ve been going through mako wide withdrawal lately (new 140 should be in soon!),
and the mako 134 has been my biggest board. Out of curiousity I put the 3” fins on this little board to see if I could squeeze some low end out of her.
I thinks its working! The board has less side slip and gets on a plane very quickly and once you are there….on a plane,
its all good! The board does stick a bit more and requires a bit more leg pressure to do a surface switch, but that has been easy to adapt to.
It sure is a lot more fun to be on such a little skatey twin tip when other kiters are on big fat glides.
Now more than ever I think the new 140 is going to be a sweet hull, and compliment the 134 perfectly.
Do you think I should make this mod too? I agree with your comments and am interested in squeezing some low end out of the Classic otherwise I will seldom use it. I can get some 6cm (2.36 inch) G10 fins I can mount on my Classic. Should I give it a shot?
