I'm still patiently waiting for my 16 x 24 RS 's  to be finished in Maui.  I guess they will be 2019's

Hope you'll make it to the islands with boards on board ;) would be an awesome backdrop for the reveal.

They weren't kidding when they say they're slammed with work, I had to make my board elsewhere because
of the timeframe.

The big one. Looks like a great river cruiser. I don't know if I'm going to get one, but I want one!

Maybe you'll  finally retire the old NSP. This one would be much nicer for river downwinders by the looks of it.

SIC seems to have a fairly good line-up (if on the high volume side of boards). I also like the fairly minimalist approach of Naish - one board to do it all the Maliko :-) and one Touring board (not sure how goo it is)  but their sup surf line-up is quite extensive.

I wish SIC did some lower volume version of the RS. Some of the women I know who ride it say it's too much board, I feel the same way.
See you finally gave up your Bark. I guess the Maliko is too good to justify it.

With mixed feelings :-)
The Vapor is a little bit more stable and relaxed in harsh side chop/side wind conditions but it is slower for general use.
Once I figured out how to downwind the Maliko in bigger conditions, there was really not enough differences overall to warrant keeping the two.
It is going to a good home, with a friend that retired on one of our island and there is a trade Naish Nalu plus cash going to me. So all good and keeping our SUP community with different boards for everybody.

They have huge volumes. Dunno why. My 12'6" 404 V3 - at a wiiide 26.5 - is only 227 liters or so.

I am a small guy. Can't imagine what it would be like to add a bizallion liters. Sloooowly I suspect.

I'd love to, Burchas. I don't see myself getting a $1.5K board any time soon, unfortunately. My new job is a hell of a lot less stressful, but the pay is lower. We also got into a big financial hole over the last year, so we're going to need to dig out.

Glad to hear that! 2019 might prove to bring some good Karma. If everything aligns, I can see something
coming your way...

I've put in plenty of Karma points, so maybe. I'm certainly drooling over the new models. I bit by the cruising bug after that 95 mile trip last year. I want to do MORE! I even got a lightweight tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad for Christmas. It would be great to cruise the Adirondacks on something new and shiny, but you gotta ride what you got.

The SIC RS is a rival for the All Star, and the All Star is hugely more volume than the RS. So I don’t understand this statement. The latest 14x26 All Star is 360L!!!!

If a person likes a low volume board then they can buy a Maliko or a Sidewinder. But some paddlers here on the zone (eg. ukgm) have actually complained that the SIC RS has too *little* volume. One advantage of higher volume boards is that they can take a wider weight range of paddler, and also quite often a full volume nose and tail can be pretty effective upwind. I paddled the RS and Maliko back to back in about 20 knots on a river and upwind the RS was noticeably faster. The All Star is very good upwind too. (With bigger upwind ocean bumps I suspect the Maliko would fare much better). So it just depends what you want out of your board, and how heavy you are. The average US Male weighs around 196lbs (89kgs). Carrying that weight, I suspect a mid-size (eg. 14x26) Maliko would not be very efficient in choppy water. Whereas a paddler of that weight on an All Star or RS 14x26 I suspect would have no problem.
