Mako Boardsports are a group of like-minded designers and engineers who have a passion for the outdoors and watersports. For surfers, boardriders and watersport aficionados we build the finest quintessentially-styled jet-powered surfboard, the ultimate conduit of good times and fun on water.
This concept is still at the heart of everything we do and if you have ever ridden a Mako, you know that we’ve built our jetboards on making the ride better. In finding innovative solutions to some of the industry’s biggest challenges.
We’ve created new standards and set new benchmarks. We do things differently. It’s never about being different for different’s sake – it’s always been about generating an effect that improves the overall experience for you, our riders. It’s what make us tick and it’s what makes our job a true pleasure and privilege.
Each Mako is hand built by skilled technicians at our British-based factory. This ensures every Mako jetboard made is to the highest quality standards and integrity, with materials that where possible, minimize the environmental impact. British engineering and design is respected all over the world and we are proud to be part of this heritage, it’s what sets the Mako Slingshot apart from other jetboards. A Mako is as British as the black cab, the computer and the lightbulb – all innovative, exceptional and enduring.
The Mako Slingshot is a masterful and intuitive blend of advanced hydrodynamics, premium materials and aerospace manufacturing technology. A next generation jet powered surfboard achieved through commitment to using materials honestly, without disguise or embellishment, to ensure that all the elements work harmoniously together including those subtle details that are not so obvious, just simply experienced. Each feature, such as the rocker, hull contour, rail, and tail shape has been evaluated and refined to maximize in-water performance while maintaining a superior level of stability. Using a range of leading technologies from rapid prototyping using 3D printers to ensuring precision via high-end CNC machine tools, our highly skilled in-house team are constantly improving the Mako jetboard to deliver handling and versatility while maintaining outstanding performance characteristics.
The value placed on select premium materials. The attention given to the tiniest of details. Mako stays committed to creating a hand-assembled, hand-finished jetboard for one simple reason… there is no better way to craft such an exacting product. Only the meticulous and exacting hand of a true craftsman can deliver the design details and high level of finish that our customers demand, creating a quality that is simple not possible by any other means. From the herringbone carbon fiber monocoque hull, to the meticulous engine assembly, the choices made by our masterly craftsmen and designers are decisive and express an ability to create excellence with an aura of the special.
Our core values give us a framework for leadership and daily decisions, and help us enjoy our time at work.
