Looking to get your feet wet for the first time? The Empire Makai is a great board for those who are new to the ocean and want to get a feel of what it's like to ride a wave! It is an awesome entry level board and comes in a variety of sizes which cater to every sized rider out there. It even comes with a FREE cloth leash to keep the board from getting pulled away from you! But perhaps the best feature is the WaveSlick HD slick which is a hard wearing, high-density slick bottom skin for improved board stiffness and speed.
