I want a Mako for a free-ride, chop-busting fun board! I consider myself a low-intermediate rider - I like to try to jump as big as I can, ride toe-side a bit, play with waves and have started doing rotations this year.
Problem is, I’m a big fattie so although I have a Flyradical L (138x42) I mostly ride my Flydoor XL cos the smaller board splashes me in the face and is a bit skittish in the chop :(
I’d like to try mutant but I really want footpads so I’m thinking the 150 Mako ... will this be ok for me?
Is it worth waiting for the 2012 boards? Or should I grab a 2011 now (I prefer the 2011 colours too!)?
