12'2" Mako Makani

With the popularity of the Molakai Downwinder, customers have asked for a smaller version for lighter paddlers. The Mako Makani is designed with a 12’2” length, a 27.5” width and combined with a very aggressive rocker this board is built for the rollers. Paddlers will enjoy the “playfulness” of this board as they downwind their favourite body of water. The Makani’s carbon construction makes the board stiff and fast, living up to the Hawaiian name for “wind”.

The MAKO series is built with a 3K carbon fiber overlay material instead of a traditional fiberglass cloth. The 3K carbon fiber is stiffer and lighter than fiberglass resulting in a quicker more responsive board. For additional board strength, a bamboo veneer top and bottom layer is placed over the EPS core. The board is then wrapped with biaxial carbon fiberglass cloth and another layer of 3K carbon for the entire standing zone. Once all the layers are set up by hand, the board is vacuum bagged. The vacuum bag process results in consistent curing and evenly distributed resins throughout the overlapping layers. The MAKO series boards have a unique, one of a kind brushed look, with strong, stiff construction to make these boards true performers on he water.
