Maki-V

Long before surfing was a mainstream sport, and just another corporate venture, it was an art; a declaration of a way of life, and a liberating means of self-expression. Surfing was regarded as physical form of jazz, rebellious yet graceful, strangely poetic. The Hobie Surfboards MAKI-V is a return to those unrestrained times. The MAKI-V is a modern translation of the Aussie design genius, Bob McTavish’s ground breaking “Plastic Machine.” The MAKI-V’s design incorporates a flattish, rolled entry rocker running into a compact speed zone and turning position under foot, producing spontaneous acceleration. The “panel vee” and hard rail in the tail efficiently transfers your down-the-line momentum, created from the speed zone, into vision-blurring turns with maximum maneuverability.
