MALIKO v2 Pro Carbon SUP Race Fin
Increased Stability, Tracking, Longer Glide & Speed in Choppy & Weed Filled Waters

SUP Race Fin – The Maliko SUP race fin offers increased stability, enhanced tracking and higher average speed especially in choppy, shallow or weed filled water. The Maliko is highly recommended for choppy conditions, downwind and ocean races as well as long distance paddling on flatter water. The 45 degree rake is designed to shed weed, kelp and trash. The Maliko is best suited for intermediate to advanced level stand up paddlers with a low to medium cadence who will benefit from the increased glide. This is the ideal fin to add stability and tracking to a narrow race board so that you can concentrate on paddling. Built in our ultralight Pro Carbon construction our fins are the lightest sup race fins available.

The Maliko stand up paddle race fin has been exploring and winning races around the world. The fin uses a unique and proprietary fin foil to generate increased lift while adding stability, improved tracking and efficiency so that every stroke you take is translated into forward motion. To develop this very special SUP race fin we worked closely with legendary SUP explorer, innovator and world record holder Bart de Zwart. Named after the start of the world renowned downwind course on the Northern coast of Maui the Maliko Gulch which hosts both the Paddle IMUA and Olukai races. Bart de Zwart & Jonanne Hamilton-Vale both used the Maliko to set their respective 24 hour world records.

“I chose the Maliko for my record attempt for three reasons, I needed a fast fin, I needed excellent tracking and a little extra stability with the narrow 18′ x 21.5” board. The Maliko does all this and it is also very light.”

Bart de Zwart, 24 Hour World Record Holder

On a downwinder the increased lift generated by the thicker and unique foil will give you the power to catch and link more swells. Ideal for lighter wind days where the added drive helps you you to pick up speed quickly. The increased lift is also ideal for those paddlers new to downwinding on wider and heavier boards. The proprietary foil is one of many features which set this SUP race fin apart from any other and the reason behind much of the success of the Maliko fin. On choppy water affected by wind and current the Maliko helps you to track straight and reduce paddle switches thus helping you to drive through the chop more effectively. The increased area towards the tip of the fin generates a keel effect helping to help you upright.SUP, SUP race, SUP race fin, SUP fin, Fastest SUP fin, fastest SUP race fin, flat water sup fin, fastest flat water sup race fin, race fin for improved tracking, sup race fin for more speed, carbon sup race fin, lightweight sup fin, maliko carbon fin, lightest stand up paddle race fin, sup fin cross section, fin foil, sup fin foil, sup fin foil cross section. During glides the Maliko helps you maintain momentum increasing average speed which translates into personal best performances. The 45 degree leading edge helps to ensure that no sea grass, weed or trash slows you down. The exceptional tracking of this fin helps you keep your board true and allows for more stokes before switching sides. Collectively the features of the Maliko when combined ensure that you are going to paddle faster, with less effort and for longer than ever before.

"This fin lived up to all the hype and research I came across. It's hard to believe that a fin can change the dynamics of my paddling so much. The Maliko has handled everything and increased my confidence." Chad, WI, USA

"I first used the Maliko fin in the Olukai race & was incredibly impressed with the stability & speed I was able to generate on the bumps. After further use in a variety of conditions including dead glass & extremely crossed up conditions this is the most versatile, lightest and fastest fin I have ever used." Andrew, SUP The Mag

"Really liking the MALIKO for the conditions I am training on. In flat water it has incredible acceleration. Downwind has been a dream with that fin too…..the lift is incredible. Super stoked!" Brian, Great Lakes Surf

"I was very surprised with the extra tracking and stability the MALIKO fin provided, especially at the start of the race amongst all the chop and wash from the other boards. I was able to use more paddle strokes on each side before switching, and it was very easy to remain in position when drafting." Chris, Jersey (UK)

 

"Narrow race boards are very unstable... With the MALIKO you can immediately feel a big difference: the board feels more stable and more comfortable ... I can put more power in my strokes and the only thing I have to do is concentrate on my technique... they are also very resistant to big impacts." Dirk, Belgium
