But then again, DJ is always right :)

Yes and he lives in the land where they are at least two used Maliko 14x28 for sale....versus none here....
I tried DJís yellow/orange era 14x28 Maliko and really liked it. How does the construction of the 2020 model differ from the earlier designs?

It's lighter and stiffer than previous models (2019/2018) closer to the 2017 in specs. If you are a serial abuser of equipment, probably not a good match for you :)

Ok, so itís not full PVC sandwich?

Iíve been pretty impressed so far with the construction of my 2020 SIC RS (made in the Kinetic factory I think). Full PVC sandwich but still nice and light.

More and more these days Iím looking at construction as a selling point of a board. Itís good to know what you are actually paying for. Or maybe the customs and Hypr Hawaii boards I now own have made me realise what a weight off my mind it is to know that a board can take a bump of two without shattering like an eggshell, or disintegrating all by itself just sitting in storage. Durability is something Iím willing to pay for.

The 2018 is heavy - 29 lbs for 267L - but it is strong and I have no worries downwinding.
In comparison the 2014 Javelin LE is light at 23~24 lbs but I hold back as it always feel that I will break it.

Was the 2018 the PVC sandwich one?

I wasn't impressed with the Maliko 2020 construction to say the least. They could have definitely taken a page out of SIC's construction book, and the finishing touches book for that matter.
extra leash plug on the front, bungie cord, multiple handles options and a GoPro mount goes a long way, would make it much more complete board. I'm not sure how haven't they realized these are good and useful selling points.
At least they realized that a 29LB for a 263L board is not a selling point ;D

Yes from a fixtures point of view it is a bit of an odd ball.
Excellent perfromance design but weight should disqualify it as a race board.
No extra at all, barebone.
Weight does not help for light conditions.
Ok fro downwinding but not everybody wants to DW a 26" wide board.
If that board could have been manufactured by Jimmy Lewis......
It seems diffiuclt sometime to have great design and great construction into one package.....

The SIC boards (and Infinity) are made in the same factory (Kinetic, Vietnam) as Jimmy Lewis now I think. They use a high pressure moulding system, and as far as my experience goes, this factory manages the best lightness-to-durability ratio of any of the bigger brandsí factories. The quality of the finish is superb too. IMO they make the Cobra-built stuff look like slapdash crap. I wouldnít have bought a 2020 SIC RS if it hadnít been full PVC and made in that factory. But since I knew it would be light and durable, it was worth it to upgrade from my older RS. PVC wrap is typically quite heavy so itís surprising that they manage to make them so light, really.

I had a Jimmy Lewis 14x23 Sidewinder that was built in that factory. Man that board was light, and it took a real beating yet still looked great. If the Naish Maliko was built to those specs, and had all the trimmings (itís amazing how handy bungees can be if you use the board for training a lot, isnít it?) it would be a real step up in performance and ownership delight. I suspect that SIC gets the little details right simply because Mark Raaphorst paddles so much himself.

My Hypr Hawaii 14 has bungees at the back, which works surprisingly well for touring because when side winds hit the load it is doing so where the fin is, so you donít get as much of a windvane effect as when the load is at the front.

The rabbit ear has arrived.
So here are the test subjects for this summer downbreezing and downwinding the 2018 Maliko:

So I had one ride with the FatBoy and one ride with teh MFC (positioned at the front of the box).
I did not feel that the FatBoy even at 9 inch was really slowing down the board on "flat" nor did I feel that it was specially beneficial - neutral. In confused waters, definitly working good with the tip acting as a sideway stop. I need more wind to get a better feel taking glides.

I had an interesting paddle with the MFC fin this time push all the way to the front of the box. I say that the couple of inches make a big difference. I had a bit of micro bumps, the kind that requires a lot of finesse to get anything out of it. I was pleasantly surprised by the fin this time. Definitly a different feel, but working these at a bit of an angle was very pleasing. Straight at 90 degrees to the bump was neither good nor bad, just like many fins.

Both fins are very good when cutting across quartering of side chop, tide, wind.

I want to try the Fat Boy on the Javelin, I have a gut feeling that it will either work perfectly or suck big time and put the brakes on, no middle ground.

I also have a Boomerang on its way from the south of England :-) might as well complete the testing this summer.......

I see - you thought that the orange Boomernang would go well with the Naish course, did you, so couldn't resist? :)

Koalition must be wondering why there is such a rush on boomerangs. I've bought 4 of them myself and friends have bought more. Before, I had to import True Ames/Longboard House Squirrels from the US, or the Netherlands etc.

It looks like Naish is rolling out 2021 Maliko.
Look like the same than 2020 with different stickers.

Ijust received my 2020 Maliko :-)
Looks better than I expected from pictures and the construction looks stronger than what I would expect from the layout that Naish shows on their web site which is not even a full sandwich. Touching wood. The board is about 26 lbs. just lifting it. Maiden voyage today.
