.... I have three yellow. Like them all...

Now I'm jealous. That's the one feature I really can't leave without.

As for the fin boxes, you can see some arbitrary numbers there. mine is more like 5" 5/8
But I rounded it down to 5.5 just because it was easier to relate. I'm sure they meant to put it at 6" but that's so unimportant to them they just "eyeball it" these days.

BTW, sitting a little higher on the water meaning a little less water on the deck.

That also means more rail travel which does help with rail steering. I'll have to further analyze what they did with the under tuck on the rail to help with the secondary stability but all good features and they found a good balance imo.

2018 it is. Maybe I should also buy a 14x24" just in case I ever become good :-)

Iím sorry this has happened to you: that looks like it will be an expensive repair to a nearly-new board, and then there is the cost of the broken paddle too.

How did the board surf?

The board pickup small waves easily and with the correct foot placement it could be controlled comfortably all things considered but as you'd expect, it wouldn't be my first choice surfing big boards. Fin placement was an issue in small waves and with a 8.5" deep fin I was testing, I felt the glide was suffering and I had to keep paddle to keep the momentum.

In fact, I was on a wave towards the beach to replace to a smaller fin when this happened.
I moved towards the center of the board to put in few more strokes and generate more speed as the wave reforms but with the sandbar changing, I hit a section where the wave became steep very abruptly and along with the speed and board trim, it sent me flying head first.

Thanks. Surfability was one of the weaknesses of the Iggy Naish boards that had a similar rocker principle, so I did wonder. I often end up surfing my 14ft (and 16ft) Boards, either on small offshore waves or when coming to shore when downwinding so itís important to me that they surf well. Itís one reason Iíve ordered a 14ft Hypr Nalu Hawaii Gun. The 11-6 Hypr gun is only 5% slower in mixed flattish sea conditions than a 14x26 SIC RS when paddles by a couple of average paddlers, so Iím hoping that a 14x26 Hypr gun might be close enough in speed to the RS in everyday conditions that unless you are racing it wouldnít really matter. Anyhow, that Iggy-type rocker does tend to be highly effective for downwind though (if a bit technical in messy conditions) and decent in flat water too. So I guess you canít have everything. Itís just a bit annoying that you canít when it leads to dings like this.

Please post pictures of the repair. Bummer - to ding both board and paddle in one incident is very unlucky.

that sux burchas about your new board.
I would suggest getting custom made boards from now on since you know what you really want?

I have to say I had it coming ::) I'm usually not gentle with my equipment, especially when exploring all conditions and I am used to custom stuff with good construction that can take some beating.

This board is a part of my next custom board project. There is a lot to love about this board, obviously construction is not one of those things but it is very light for a 14x26.

Had a fun downwinder today on it. Taped the nose for now until I get it modified.
Not optimal conditions, with strong tide coming in and wind direction shifting to some side
but the board handles adversity very well and still manage to feel lively.

The nose can take some hits from side bumps and still keep the momentum with some maintenance strokes. When I bury the nose from time to time it pops out better than previous models.

Board generates good speed (up to 9.5mph) even on a day like today where conditions are far from ideal on bay conditions with good fetch. Low teens to mid 20's with some dead sections.

Fin box placement is still an issue for me.

I agree and would stay away from some of these brands and exploring custom board to your liking is the right thing for you unless you find a good reputable brand. Crosswind sux and the last time I experience one it wasn't nice and I ended up laying down to paddle with my hand freestyle.

How fast is the 2020 Maliko in pure flat water? The Glide Mk2 models were surprisingly good and had a similar rockerline, perhaps. In fact this board kinda makes me think of that one, in concept. It was very fast DW.

Iíll reserve the pure flat water speed tests to when Iíll add my fin boxes so I can actually run comparisons with original fin box and send my guy in Naish real data.

Iím going to measure the rocker line for this board along with footage of how it sits in the water once I found the best trim. Iím not sure I understand what makes this rocker so good for DW.

Flat-ish rocker from tail to about two-thirds forward gives it good pace for accelerating into the bump, then when you get forward you are pointing the tail up (for maximum push from the bump) but the nose is horizontal-ish, meaning that again the board is moving forward fast with little drag. These boards are kinda a two-stage design I think, contrasting with the continuous rocker like the JL M14. Highly effective most of the time but you are likely to find some conditions every once in a while where it is an inexplicable handful I think.

Isnít it a return to this kinda board for Naish (below)?But with the edges knocked off (literally), and a bit more moderate? A proper downwinder. It was a very versatile board, and is still one of the fastest DW you can get, even all these years on.

I love the series of video from Cape Town. I am not sure why they stopped doing them after a while.
