I just purchased the Mako wide and King, and am simply amazed by the smoothness and performance.  The only issue that I’ve had with the King is that when I ride it as a twin tip, there are empty holes where the mutant fins would go.  I seem to get a bit of spray through them which make a direct line for my eyes.  Does anyone have any experience with this and any better ideas than just taping over them.  Thanks a lot!

Surf wax will take care of that - stoked you love the board!

Cheers,

Surf wax does indeed take care of that and we have also begun shipping all 2011 Makos with hole plugs that snap into place!

Kamikuza, shoot me an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we can figure that out. Have you tried surf wax as per above?

Thanks Ned!
No not yet ... I’ll see if one of the other locals here has any wax - but the nearest surf shop I know is 300km east of here :o there’s not much surfing to be had on the lake in the middle of the island LOL

Sorry Kamikuza… my inbox actually isn’t full, I have it disabled as I found PMs here tough to keep up with and wanted to avoid people feeling I was ignoring them. You can always email me smile

Sounds like Ned is getting you some plugs though!
