Clayton Surfboards – Makoi Fish Model Review
Clayton surfboards are widely acclaimed as pure quality surfboards. Clayton himself started shaping in 1994, and has since become a shaper legend. Two of the Superstoked crew members have put the board to the test, and this is our honest review.
“Designed with low overall rocker and a central concave for lift. It features a wider tail for acceleration in small waves. The Makoi Fish paddles great and surfs fast and allows for a wide range of performance in varied surf. Can be used in either a thruster or quad fin set up.” (Clayton Surfboards)
Having tested the board out in England, we could quickly see that it excelled in smaller waves (1-4 ft). It does what it promises, and you quickly pick up speed when you are paddling in to a wave, once in the wave you will find that it is nicely maneuverable and also picks up speed very nicely. It has a bullet-shaped nose which allows you to penetrate the lip of the wave for doing top-turns.
It is a great board for those less powerful days, providing tons of tons of fun. However, it is not the board you want to bring to massive, powerful, hollow reef-breaks – but you already knew that. Good all-rounder.
