The Board

The Mako is our Pintail.

We’ve been making pintail shaped longboards for a looooong time. In fact the first ever boards that we cut out from flat birch in our cellar were pintails.

If you’re new to all this, the pintail is the archetypal longboard shape. derived from Big Gun surfboards, pintails are made to cruise in style.

This is what we in the trade call a “proper longboard.” Being topmounted, it’s more responsive than a drop-through deck – you just can’t beat the feeling of laying out some carves on a smooth topmounted pintail

However, the Mako isn’t quite the same as all the other pintail shapes out there right now:

It’s Long!!!!

We think that too many longboards these days – especially pintails – are way too short.

When we started making boards all those years ago, longboards were long. Forty Inches was considered a “smallish cruiser.”

So to bring things back to our roots, we’ve made the Mako a full 44″ long with a 30 3/8″ wheelbase.

The Mako is a Proper Longboard. Stick some loose trucks on there, throw some turns down and you’ll remember what this longboarding thing is all about!!

The Perfect Pintail

The other thing that sets the Mako apart from all the other pins out there is the shape and standing platform.

The pintail shape, by nature, is narrower over the wheels and trucks – which leaves very little room to stand on. Yes, they look nice… but we want to make something that really skates well, too.

So we’ve started from the ground up and added some extra wood where you need it most. The nose and tail on the Mako are way wider and more usable than most other pintails, and you even have enough room for some cross-stepping, sliding or even a tuck if that’s your thing.

This isn’t just a pretty face. The Mako is ready for whatever longboarding adventures you want – cruising, carving, dancing, sliding or even a bit of downhill.

Choose your setup

We’re only using premium Sabre Trucks and Cult Wheels on the Mako completes.

Given that the trucks and wheels are just as important than the deck (if not more so!), we figured it would be pretty silly to make such a nice deck and stick crappy no-name wheels and trucks on it.

By selecting proper undercarriage, the Mako rolls faster, further and smoother, and turns way better than a lot of other cheaper pintails out there.

You can choose a setup to suit your budget, but we’ll never let you compromise on the ride!
