SUP Race Fin For Increased Maneuverability, Tracking & Stability, Ideal For Ocean Racing & Downwind

Our best-selling fin, the Maliko is built to give intermediate and advanced level paddlers a significant performance advantage in ocean or downwind conditions.

Designed to excel in rougher water, the Maliko offers increased stability, enhanced maneuverability and longer glides. The curved and progressive 45° rake easily sheds kelp, while still helping paddlers achieve better board handling, track straighter and reduce the need for excess paddle changes, enabling them to power through chop more effectively.

The Maliko is best suited for intermediate to advanced level stand up paddlers. Built in our Ultralight Pro Carbon construction our fins are the lightest sup race fins available.

  1. This fin could serve as a one fin quiver for the average racer

    ScottC

    Just used the V3 maliko with 24″ Naish Maliko on a 22.5 mile race (half open ocean/half back bay) Fin ran through a gambit of conditions – chop, swell, DW conditions, current, wind and drafting. It excelled in all categories! I was hesitive using a smaller fin but it has fantastic hold, super tracking and great reactivity on the bumps. We don’t typically get DW’ers on the east coast for races but this one did and i had no problem linking bumps. In the flats it tracked so well and one of the easiest fins to foot steer while drafting. No bouy turns but i have done them and does a pretty damn good job. Clearly this fin could serve as a one fin quiver for the average racer. Very happy with my purchase!

  2. Great fin

    Gavin

    Great fin, this is the most stable and yet equally fast fin I have. I repeat super stable.

  3. Great tracking

    Steve Arkell (verified owner)

    Been running the Maliko on my custom Bark 14/23.5. This is such a good fin on this board, great tracking 15+ strokes per side or more. Good on turns, never feels sluggish.
    I’m in Texas and paddle a variety of Lakes and rivers. The fin has just the right surface area in turbulence. Just forgiving enough to allow the board to flow w the river.
    Looking forward to trying the new Ray as well. Keep up the innovation Chris. Great stuff. Cheers Steve

  4. Amazing job on the Maliko v3

    Glen Buchanan (verified owner)

    I’ve been running the v2 and v3 basically on opposite days on both my Sprint (14×23”) and Allstar (14×23.5”) for the past number of weeks, and the stock Starboard Race Ultra 2.0

    I used the V2 Mailko almost exclusively for the entire 2018 season…. and absolutely loved it. The only time I wasn’t using it was when I had loaned it out for someone else to try. The draft and surface area of the V2 were bang on perfect my size (6’2” 205lb) so I was a little skeptical on the V3 at first due to the decreased surface area, but the hold on the v3 is fantastic. I felt comfortable on both boards with the V3 within the first week. The biggest change point for me is the reactivity of the v3 going downwind…. Getting from bump to bump was easier, the board reacts quicker and I don’t feel like I’m fighting the board as much as did.

    Amazing job on the V3….. Really great…..

  5. I am completely blown away at how amazing this fin is

    Tim Warner (verified owner)

    I am completely blown away at how amazing this fin is. I have the Sonic which is also incredible for surfing, flat water and buoy turns. I was looking for a second fin that would allow stability and provide excellent tracking. I contacted black project immediately when I saw the Maliko V3 for sale. This fin does not catch weeds, tracks straight and is very fast. The last test was 6.6 miles at close to 6mph average. We also did a test downwinding and the longer profile really helps with steering the board and keeping you stable. I recommend this product for sure. Having the confidence going into all conditions is really awesome. Thanks so much guys.

  6. Downwind it feels fluid and responsive

    Chloë Blampied

    Tracking is spot on upwind and going into swell, with no noticeable drag but then downwind it feels fluid and responsive. Perfect for people like me who don’t want to have to keep changing fins depending on the conditions. Similarly, if your budget means you can only have one fin, then this has to be the fin of choice, In my view, this is the fin that is suitable for all and for all occasions.
