Happened last Sunday out of the blue, board didn’t get any noticeable knocks or bangs (shes very clean). I was cruising and notice that something wasn’t right…. I stopped up and was nearly brought to tears
I’ve had the board since January but only been using since March/April as I’m only kitesurfing for 6 months…. love the Mako!
I’m hoping that this is covered by warranty? I purchased the board from http://www.kingofwatersports.com (UK). Do I return it to them in the UK or have to you a Mako representative in Ireland that could have a look at it?
Ivan, I believe I just spoke with Charlotte from KoWS about this. Please get to her the following information to speed the warranty process:
1) Invoice or date of purchase from KoWS
2) Size of board, 140x40 or 150x40?
3) Photo of the serial number, on the tail of the board by the fin - she already has photos of the damage
4) Address to ship the replacement to, including your cell number and an indication of if this is a residential or commercial building.
Thanks for the speedy reply, I’ll do all you suggest above.
I had the same thing happen to my ‘09 Mako 140, I love this board, I don’t want to ride anything else, and I was cruising along today and pretty much could feel something drag, and one of the rails delamed.
I sent you a e-mail through the OR Forums, but I’m not sure it went through. The board is 6 months old and I purchased it from Ocean Extreme Sports in St. Augustine, FL, although I live in Charleston, SC.
By the way, the local OR rep, Chris, was really helpful and lent me the King for the rest of my session today.
very same thing happened me…. was crusing along and the board start to feel funny….
Don’t fret…OR looked after me very well !
Contact their customer service!
Yep Ocean Rodeo hooked it up with a brand new 2010 Mako 140 to replace my delamed board. Great customer service, everyone was extremely helpful.
Now if I can just get a couple of OR Rises thrown in, ha.
Thanks again OR
