The mako pro takes more rider input than the 150 surf, its a lot shorter in length. But it gives back to the rider a super smooth and fast platform than can bite and deliver explosive airtime and low swing weight.
12m and under, 18 to 40+ kts, this is my favorite board to ride right now.
The deep concave allows good control of the kite in powered conditions, and the 135 length is perfect for instant selection of any peice of chop or wave you want to rip or vault off.
I've been using this board hard for almost 6 months now and I'm impressed at how well the shaped rails handle beach abuse.(they are shaped around the entire edge of the board) With no angles or straight edges, a hard knock seems to just deflect off the rail instead of dinging and spreading the lamination. Its wierd.
Who ever is making these boards for Ocean Rodeo, sure seems to be doing a perfect job of making a unique and fun rides for kiters like us.
I'm dig'n it!
