Bliss Air & Ratchet
The most revered, longest selling kiteboard in history now rides on air.
After 17 years in the Ocean Rodeo board line-up, we thought the time was right to revisit the classic Mako. Was it possible to improve upon this legendary board? Over the last 12 months the Mako went in for a full check up!
The OR R&D team decided to give Mako a complete physical and try something new. They tested the Mako shape in multiple 4-fin setups and found the board lost its playful nimble feel and became slower. New tail shape profiles were developed and tested, all of which of which gave no new benefit. They even built prototypes with thick profiled tuck-shaped surf rails. No go!
The reality was that all these modifications seemed to have a negative effect when we tested these “new Makos” against the original shape, taking away from the balanced, lively, hard-carving, chop-eating, grin-inducing ride that has made the Mako an industry legend.
However, there was one upgrade that did make a positive difference. Make it lighter. Make the flex more “crisp”. We lowered the board weight by swapping in a new mineral-based composite to replace the classic S-glass. Now lighter, the Mako has found a new flex and liveliness that will be noticed and enjoyed by even the most diehard Mako devotee.
As always, 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 ‘No Excuses’ coastal conditions that it is built to perform in.
Each Mako board includes our new Bliss air pads and straps.
Highly adjustable, the Bliss Air pads & straps are designed to work with all Ocean Rodeo and most other brand’s twin tip kiteboards.
Featuring ultra durable and comfortable dual density EVA foam pads and near infinite strap configuration options the Bliss Air pad & strap system present your feet with the perfect balance of comfort and control when riding.
Built for ‘real world’ conditions, the Mako excels where all other conventional twin tips fail. Short-fetch chop, rolling ocean waves, inside shore breaks, the Mako smoothly traverses it all and delights in setting the rail hard for a high G force carve to reverse direction for another tack.
What’s the secret? 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. The Mako delivers a powerful fluid carving experience and a dependable rail for stratospheric boosting.
Available in 4 different sizes, the Mako lineup 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.
