I weight 76 KG for this year and i will go 80-82 for next summer. What should i buy tell me please your opinion
I've ridden both and I'm roughly your size, I think anyways (185 lbs). I forget the conversion, but anyways. I'm an intermediate rider, basically sent jumps, back rolls, etc. I love the Mako 140, I've ridden both the 140 and 150 quite a bit, in fact, I'm on the 150 right now as I had an incident and lost my 140.
But anyways, the 140 is a lot looser, and easier to spin around and control in the air. The 150 carves deeper, and I can't really tell a difference in regard to going upwind.
So depending on what you want to use the Mako for, I'd go with the 140.
