Maliko 14' looking stealthy.. Vacuum laminated and ready for inserts ( fin box and leash plugs ).... At this stage the weight is 15.75 lbs... Looking for a finished weight of under 18 lbs...Deck patch is bamboo veneer...

Wow, impressed you're dropping weight. Wasn't your original about 21 pounds? Switched glassing factory too?

Bill San, how wide?  Let me try it.  I'm of the mind that light is right.  Those few pounds are huge.

I keep thinking I wish I could have brought home admins Maliko after using it in the downwind showcase. Was that one 27.5 wide? I was surprised how stable it was for me.

Awww man!  That is EXACTLY what I want for Christmas (last Christmas!).  ;D

My Maliko 14' is the fastest thing I've paddled downwind.  Period.  The only thing that I can think to improve is the weight. Mine is not bad; around 27 lbs with pad and fin, if I remember correctly. 

But 18 lbs?  Cheeeehuuuuu!!!    ;D :o ;D

Stoneaxe.. Randy's board was 27.5'' or 27.25'' Jill Rigg's, Jeremy"s wife is now the proud owner of that Maliko 14' and has been seeing plenty of water time...

I'm still amazed how stable it was. I absolutely loved that board. Shawn Vec made me a nice board based on what I remembered of that one but didn't capture the same magic. Maybe one of these days. Are you still sending boards out to Rick Romano?
