  Mako surf kayaks
  Posted by: seadart on Aug-31-13 12:48 PM (EST)
 

MIke Johnson kayaks are named Mako and there are several models now.
He no longer builds them but they are made by PS composites.

Infinity makes the triplane bottom waveskis which were incorporated into Mike's designs. For a while Infinity made "Mako" wave skis and Mike several years ago made the Phat Mako with Steve. The Dominator I think was a Mike and Steve Collaboration. Mike rides a Dominator now at San Onofre, at least he did a year or so ago when I last talked with him.

In the 80s one of the early surf kayaks was called a "Screaming Taco" it was fast like a Mako, but apparently tended to collapse.
