Coast Runner is almost perfect for most down-winding that is sub full on Maliko style imo - just too wide for me.
I want the speed that only a narrower board brings, a 25 or 26" Coast Runner would be perfect.
The Bill Foote Maliko 14 boards are fantastic boards and go to prove that you don't need massive rocker, they do require that you walk the board and feel very high up after the sunken standing position of the Ace.
I think a large part of the secret of the Ace is the narrowness, and the sunken standing position lets mortals get away with it, the current Ace is actually 24", same as Jeremy Riggs Maliko 14 (I think) but I'm sure his board feels much tippier than the Ace despite being a little fuller in outline in the tail. But for sheer surfing downwind fun, the ease of walking around the Foote board and the way it surfs it's awesome. Custom shapers like Bill can make exactly what you want, something no big manufacturer can ever do, Starboard is having a go, haven't counted how many 14' boards in the range this year but its quite a few!
And the weight factor is huge too in downwinding, sub 20 lbs for the latest Foote 14's...insane! No doubt fragile out of the water but for a custom thats fine.
