[quote author=“Kirk”]I am a newbie. I have an old F-one Explorer 160 as my only board at the moment. I kinda figured this would be my light wind board for awhile. If I hang on to the F-one, what board would you recommend for a beginner-progressing to intermediate? We are talking old style here with no loops or big air in the near future!

Either Mako will be a great choice for you. I would decide based on your conditions. If you have waves in you area, or really just like to cruise REALLY fast in flat water and chop, go for the Surf. If you think you are going to get into freestyle, or want a board that ” feels ” a bit more like a conventional board, go for the Pro. Both of them rip!
