The Maliko v3 is designed for intermediate to advanced paddlers who want the stability and ease of use familiar with the v2 but with added agility much like the smaller Sonic. With a 45° rake this fin will easily shed weed, kelp and trash. Thanks to proprietary foiling and a low drag profile those who switch from the v2 will notice a speed increase. The biggest improvement will be noticed in ocean and downwind conditions where the Maliko v3 will enable a more agile and flowing glide. Those with boards with a forward fin box placing (which reduces board tracking) will benefit from the increased length and area compared to the Sonic and Tiger. The new fin will also be ideal for surf races, especially in rougher conditions where a little extra stability is helpful, similarly the Maliko v3 is ideal for channel crossings and longer distance paddling.
