Re: Liquid Force P1 - taking on the Edge and XR5?

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

Mako 140. What year model is this?

Can anyone tell me which year model this Mako 140 is please?

I'm really keen to get the tucked rail which was introduced a few years ago but I don't know if this board (pictured) is the generation with a tucked rail or not.

Re: Why do we need a spreader bar?

Good feedback guys, thanks!

@ RORKE. I have a 8M 2011 Rally and feel the same way you do.
