The Maliko models have a legacy of being the best 14-foot open ocean and sprint boards around. These race-winning shapes have garnered an endless collection of high-ranking results across a variety of race types including the M2O World Championships, all varieties of sprint races, and all-time wins at downwind races (such as the Naish Gorge Paddle Challenge and many other downwind race circuits on Maui).
The raised nose rocker, combined with the added volume in the nose, widens the sweet spot for trimming when on a glide and creates a smooth nose entry when connecting bumps. The rail has been refined with a smooth, rounded nose that transitions into a forgiving midsection, which finally morphs into sharp rails through the tail. The sharp rails through the pin tail create a clean release for higher top speeds when on a glide while providing excellent control when steering and connecting bumps.
Not only a downwind board; the Maliko also has a proven track record as the sprint board of choice for multiple ISA World Champion and 2x Red Bull Heavy Water Winner Casper Steinfath. The all-star took this board to victory in multiple technical sprints and broke records paddling from Denmark to Norway on his Viking Crossing Tour. Input from Steinfath has made this board into the race-winning, all-water superstar it is today.
