First paddle in flat, back eddies, low tide sandbar and downbreezer. Verdict. Everything a little bit better, a little bit faster than the 2018. Stoked.

I can only speak for the 2018 Maliko. I jusy got the 2020.
Bunny for quartering and cutting  across.
MFC for running strong 5 meters tides.
Mako 35 for everything else.
The small GTM fin is fun but you are always borderline of the tail getting too loose. Still some days it just feel right for having some fun

Looks great! Are you going to customise the nose like Burchas did? :)

Forgot to say that i am using the bunny ear with my Allround and the squirrel with the Maliko. Not enough time with the squirrel but gor now i prefer the bunny over the squirrel.

With this in mind the Dolphin mini 6.5" deep with a 5.75" base and 29sqi area is my go to DW fin for the most part. It might be on the smaller size but it would work for most conditions you'd think about taking the Maliko. when it gets to a point that I can really surf the faces of  the bumps, I'm going to a different board anyway. I would go slightly deeper like 7.5" but I feel that the 5.5"-6" base size is the best compromise between paddling and riding bumps, for this board that is.

I am finding that the 2020 Maliko is even more sensitive to fins than the 2018.

So far the SIC 7.0 has been working best. The board is skipping and skimming on the water and it is a joy. I could not get the SIC 7.0 on a light downind yet. Only the FatBoy.
Anything deeper seems to hold the board big time and I do not get the release for getting easily on a bump in under 20 knots conditions, light or marginal wind conditions.
Even the Mako 35, which was working a charm on the 2018 Maliko does not produce the expected result... ???

I have added to the base on my Allison GTM 6.5 to fit in the box and will be trying next. And the GTS 7.75 if I get the chance of a 25 knots downwind, but the base might be too wide for that board. Might have to wait fall or winter it looks like, this summer.

Now if we are talking just pure stability in side-chop and side-wind, the 9" Boomerang works a charm. It works better than the 9" Fatboy and seems to provide a slightly better release.

I just need the weekdays to paddle, not only the weekends :-)

Well that did it....light downwind or improved downbreezer, whichever applies...
Board was loosened, catched bumps without much efforts, cut across without much issues. Night and day.
Went from hard work to pure fun. Definitely no fin over 7" unless in big conditions.

8" x 5.5" @37sqi. I still like the Dolphin mini for smaller days but if you can only have one, this would be it. It doesn't stall even on the smallest of days.

That is what I need :-)

I am also hoping that the Boomerang squirrel fin would work on bigger days.
Smaller days 6.5" GTM it is.
