Discover the most playful, compact and lightweight motorised surfboard that everyone can enjoy. Fun to ride and easy to use, the Mako Slingshot is designed to make the most out of your time on the water. Perfect for every adventure, from a short rip around the lake to a full day of family fun.
The Mako Slingshot is perfectly balanced to give outstanding stability and control, so it’s easier than ever to jump on a board regardless of skill level. From the seasoned rider, to someone just getting their toes wet for the first time, the Mako Slingshot jet board offers a versatile and unforgettable powered surfing experience.
90 MINS CRUISE
The Mako Slingshot jet board captures that feeling of carving big flowing turns and driving rail to rail hacks even when the water is flat. The carbon fibre hull has an authentic surfboard feel blending the characteristics of traditional surfboard design and modern performance. The outline is narrow at the nose and fuller through the tail, with extra width on the hip before the fins to increase planning efficiency and to help tighten those turns. The higher nose kick and wider hip opens up the transition point to the bottom curve optimising the connection with the water, offering stability and drive.
Once up on your feet, you will start to feel the lift generated by the flat planes of the angled-V bottom, ensuring that you’re able to make some serious ground right from the start. The increase in tail rocker, and extension of the harder boxier rail length gives the Mako a lovely loose feeling, which is great for throwing down carving turns. The tri-fin thruster setup has been a favourite for the past quarter century and combines speed, precision and control in a range of conditions. On the water this translates to greater manoeuvrability and stability so you can surf with complete confidence.
New for 2022. The Slingshot’s distinctive spectrum of anodized colours enhance the sleek carbon fibre finish and highlights every hydrodynamic contour to give your jetboard even more presence.
The most enjoyable jet board is one that everyone can use. That’s why Mako comes with many assistive features, so your desire to ride is easier, quicker and more fun
TOOL-LESS FIN SYSTEM
With the Mako fin system it’s possible to install and remove your fins in seconds without the need for any screws or tools, so you’ll be out on the water faster. The Mako fin system gives you more control and response from your jet board, and that equates to better surfing.
VERSTAILE FOOT STRAPS
Whether left foot forward or right, Mako offers you versatile control. Easy adjustment foot straps provide a solid connection between you and your jet board for active handling when carving turns. The asymmetrical body shape gives a positive fit yet allows dynamic foot position for a more personalised stance.
PLUG & PLAY BATTERY PACK
The plug-and-play battery pack eliminates power-related downtime, maximising your time out on the water. A high-strength enclosed screw-in design ensures fast changeover and protection from weather and saltwater, while the electronics remain well-protected inside the sealed engine bay for safety and reliability.
RAPID-FILL FUEL TANK
The readily-placed external filler cap safeguards against injury by removing combustible fuel away from any hotspots ensuring greater safety and practicality when heading out on the water. A full tank gives you over an hour of riding time, redefining your possibilities for exploration and adventure.
ERGONOMIC CARRY HANDLES
Recessed handles make for effortless portage, putting the weight over your centre of gravity so you don’t have to compensate or lean awkwardly. Gone are burning forearms and the numbing fatigue as you stretch to wrap fingertips around the rail. Just pick up your jet board and go, for a stress free journey down to the water.
TRACTION PADS BY SEADEK
Diamond groove pads provide unidirectional traction that grips when pushing into the straps, and releases when pulling out – perfect for powering through turns. With 10mm foam for comfort and shock absorption and a 5mm top layer for durability and superior non-skid performance in both wet and dry conditions, Mako gives you complete control and connection to your jet board.
No matter the task, the Mako Slingshot is up to it – and then some. Under the carbon fibre skin a muscular heart beats pure performance, so you can go just about anywhere and do just about anything on the water. The potent XT100 2-stroke engine unencumbered by weight, its straight-line performance paired with high levels of torque, even at low rpm. The pre-tuned precision jetted carburettor and racing exhaust, with double reflection sonic supercharging, boosts this compact powerhouse to create an experience that is both unique and unforgettable.
That feeling as the engine hits max revs leaves no question as to why the Mako Slingshot sets the standard for power, acceleration and efficiency. All encased in an incredibly compact design that weighs only five kilos.
Mako’s direct-drive axial-flow jetdrive converts the XT100’s incredible raw power into instant traction on the water, delivering heart-racing excitement and thrills on every wake or wave.
COMPONENTS YOU CAN COUNT ON
The XT100 is bred to keep you out on the water, where you belong. Thanks to the use of aerospace and motorsport-derived technologies, the XT100 is built tough and built to last; to deliver the most critical feature of all – peace of mind.
