Ok boys, last Wed on the south side Frisco OBX I had my first go with my Mako wide in large surf, it was SW 20+ and easily dbl overhead plus houses on the outer bars. I rode with some locals all on thrusters. The Mako W handled the conditions perfectly with the larger 2.5” surf fin on, carving the faces like a thruster and the versatility to tear apart the inside (which was a little narr narr) . Thanks OR for such a great board! All the boys were like, “what the hell is that thing” and after seeing me tear up the joint they wanted to try it!

Cheers, John from RI

John! I just got word from Kmac my wide 140 is finally arriving. I was sold in 5 minutes when I tried Wouters unit - we don’t get houses in Holland but loads of messy multi-direction wind and shorebreak, gonna be so much fun to shred that. I’ll try the large fin for sure.
What are you on, the 150 or 140?
