Any News on the OR Mako 150 x 40

Why should one buy the 2011 Mako 150 x 40? Had the Jimmy Lewis and Lightwave and Best boards and want to try something new, is this the board to start to get into the kne to chest high choppy waves?

I ride a Mako 150X40 and a Mako King and have three other boards.
A great, great choice for chop...... but be warned, if you ride this board you will end up loving your other boards less. :)

No hesitation!

But it's a lot more than just a board to start in choppy waves.

And you are warned by OldnBroken about the addiction.

cause kiteboarding dudes are divided on 2 categories when it comes to boards. Those that have gotten a mako under their feet and those that hasn't

Its maybe the best freeride board when it comes to ride confortable. It doesnt pop good but jump great !!

I agree with what has been said, when I get tired of the freestyle, I grab the mako 140x40 and that does it.
