The Ocean Rodeo Mako has long enjoyed the reputation as kiteboarding’s smoothest, most refined ride with hard biting rails and a concave shape that smooths out the chop. And new for 2018 the Mako rides on a pocket of air. The board is shipped complete with the all new Bliss Air and Ratchet pad and strap system. Air pockets in the pads disburse the chop and absorb hard landings while the innovative ratchet system ensures your straps are perfectly shaped to your feet.
Designed and constructed for ‘real world’ conditions, the Mako is in its element where other conventional twin tips fall short. Steep chop, rolling waves, or mushy white water, the Mako smoothly handles it all and sets the rail hard for a high G force carve to reverse direction for another tack.
How? The deepest rail-to-rail concave of any twin tip ever produced combined with rounded tips, down-turned rails and a perfectly tuned rocker line – that’s how. This design ensures that the Mako delivers a powerful and dynamic carving experience and a dependable rail for atmospheric boosting.
Available in 4 different sizes, the Mako line-up offers Freeride enthusiasts of all backgrounds a board suited to their riding style and size while the wood core ensures your board will survive the rough and tumble coastal conditions this board is built to perform in.
The Mako 135, 140 & 150 are ready to ride in conventional Twin Tip mode while the 165 can be set up for Twin Tip or Mutant style riding with the optional fin expansion pack. Don't forget, our price includes the new Ocean Rodeo Bliss Air pads and straps, as well as fins and handle.
