Four time World Champion and Naish team paddle boarder, Casper Steinfath, was recently in California. Travelling from his native Denmark with a 14′ carbon race board for the quick trip seemed like overkill, so Naish sent him the new 2020 Inflatable Maliko racing paddle boards and the new 2020 Inflatable Glide touring boards. Did the new Naish Maliko and Glide Inflatables get the viking’s approval? We’ll let you be the judge.
It is safe to say that Casper was impressed with the performance of the new inflatable paddle boards. The days of travelling around the would with a 14′ composite board may be over.
“It’s super stiff, the material is rigid, it paddles really fast. So, stiffer is better.”
The 2020 Naish inflatable paddle board range sees the introduction of several technologies that aren’t found in other brands. Quad carbon stringers, Hydroslick Edges, double layer rails, fusion construction, etc. All of this leads to some of the stiffest boards on the market today.
