Sharks and surfboards evolve according to environment. Inspired by its elusive and powerful namesake, the Mako model is all about speed, release and adaptability to meet challenges or changes in environment. The Mako was originally designed for playing in the sandboxes of the So-Cal bight (local beach breaks). But recent pelagic testing has revealed the Mako’s amazing adaptability. The Mako not only survives in foreign environments, but comes alive and thrives in consequential conditions. In other words, the low-entry rocker is deceptively and dangerously effective in kegs of consequence. Also key to the board’s boundary-flexing possibilities is the tail section: The very same single concave, which squirts bursts of speed in So-Cal’s sandy mush, provides the drive to backdoor hollow section. This concave blends into the ideal tail configuration for the superior control necessary in barrels spinning above coral.
In an era where the top dogs ride six-foot boards in triple-over-head surf, the Mako offers a reasonable option for mere mortals. Try hiding a little extra volume at the stringer while keeping your rail finely tuned. Don’t be afraid to fatten the outline to suit your tastes, the Mako’s bullet trim always smashes the mark. It’s been proven that you can shred on the Mako after work in shore break slop…then stuff it in your boardbag and push its limits (and yours) on a sick trip. Whether you’re fifteen or fifty, expand your reality with a new surfboard.
