Dominating the competition at the 2016 Victoria Cup, Casper Steinfath continues to lead the pack with the Maliko 12’6” Carbon Elite. The ultimate board for a variety of conditions, the Maliko 12’6” shines in everything from flatwater to chop to open ocean or surf racing.
Ideal for advanced level riders and competition, this board is engineered to keep riders at their peak through sprints and long-distance runs. Its beveled rail in the nose raises the rail rocker line while keeping the center line straight and efficient, offering a more forgiving ride in chop and side-wind conditions along with improved handling in surf racing. Perfectly balanced, this board offers just enough stability to combat fatigue on those long runs and keep riders aggressive at buoy turns, to take full advantage of key competition opportunities.
Dihedral shaping carried further into the deck allows water to disperse from the deck of the board faster, allowing the nose to slice through water more quickly while maintaining stability.
ATTENTION: Highly specialized equipment. Handle with care.
Engineered for peak performance, this lightweight carbon construction is susceptible to breakage from excessive pressure or repetitive blows to the structure. Use caution when transporting and riding as such damage is considered normal wear and tear and is not covered under warranty.
