I’ve never ridden the Mako ‘Classic’ (150x34) but have experience of the smaller sized 134? It was a nice board and I rode it in the flat and in wind chop but never proper waves. Ended up purchasing a 129 Zen and have been very happy with it. Gets going really early for someone of 65 kilos though I’m not doing a lot of freestyle stuff. Want to keep it but wanted something for the waves.
Went and got myself a 2008 Mako Surf having tried a similar sized (perhaps a little wider in the mid-section)directional from another manufacturer. Have not used it a great deal, and that may be part of the problem but when I have tried to get on with it I’ve found it difficult to ride. Obviously haven’t progressed to gybing the thing yet and wondering if I should keep hold of it and persevere or to progress quicker look at another Mako?
Wondered what the crew thought-Mako Surf or one of the other Mako’s? The surf could be just the ticket and it’s great looking but having read much about the other boards I’m just wondering if it’s too advanced for me just at this moment and is holding me back?
