when does the Mako 2011 hit the shops in Europe?
Welcome to the crew! I’m told the Mako’s will arrive in January - I’m needing one too!
Our much beloved John Z may have more information on this.
I am very sorry that the 2011 Makos have been so delayed. As you know we switched to a wood core construction for 2011. This process caused more frustrations than we had expected with the 1st production run. Whereas our samples came in fine the initially produced “final samples”, aka 1st test batch of production boards all had too flat a rocker line due to the resilience of the wood springing back in shape.
It took us close to 2 months to iron out the kinks on the new production run, pushing back our delivery.
Long story short, the boards will be on a boat as of the end of this month with expected delivery to us sometime towards the end of January. Trust me, we are all anxious to get those boards in and on the water!
thnx for the honesty and fast reply.
still january?? i’m very excited to ride the new board…
Yes, 2011 Makos are expected to arrive in NA in 2 1/2 weeks, and will be well worth the wait!
