I want to get a Mako Wide for my wife. She’s a beginning rider able to stay upwind on a 2006 OR 141 Legend. Shes about 5 feet 2 inches (1.6m) and about 130 lbs (59 kg).  Would a Mako Wide be good for her size, or maybe the 140 Mako.  I really like how the Mako Wide rides through the chop but i wonder if it migh be too much board for her. Anybody her size riding a Mako Wide? How do you like it?

140 is all she needs, don’t take the 150 wide with her size and weight.
Did she ever try a Mako?

If I read carefully I see that it is you that wants the Mako.. you’re right.
