4.0/5

The Zeeko Makaira foilboard is a special piece of gear that opens a whole new world for light wind riding. It is the perfect tool for having fun in less than 10 knots of wind speed and at the same time it offers superior freeride performance.

It is also a versatile racing weapon which can be used in world class competitions without problems. It features a hydrodynamic shape which makes the board very fast and assures excellent tracking performance. The Makaira can be attached to virtually any surf kiteboard to maximize its potential. It is like a fin replacement to maximize power and performance.

An S design T Bar maximizes the water flow to provide a better drive and speed. A high aspect ratio front wing provides maximum efficiency and power management in light winds. The Makaira uses a back fin stabilizer with double vertical fins provides superior stability and improved upwind performance. The long profile fuselage assures excellent stability even at high speeds.

The Makaira is designed based on numerical and hydrodynamic simulations and built using a High Modulus Carbon structure which makes it rigid and assures better performance and control. The Makaira is connected with the board through a four screw system which provides maximum rigidity and easy setup.

The Makaira is available with or without a Slash 5'8'' Surfboard.
