Anybody like the M200 in small waves for prone surfing ?
Big and slow not good at all for the prone
Yes it will help you pump but it's so slow you'll have to work really hard . So many better wings out there for a prone . The 200 is more for the Sup.
I used it a bit early on, I was probably the only guy around here that proned it. It was real good to learn pumping, and I had some fun in small surf but the Iwa was overall a lot better once I clued up a bit.
if I had to do it over again, I'd just get an Iwa and a Kai tail, and then get a 210 or 180...The 210 is all I ride now.
Hey Clamsmasha, what weight are you, I'm 88 and riding an Iwa.
Good news with the Maliko 200 is you can ride it in the most marginal of surf- it pops up w/ ease on micro bumps and you can pump it around as long as your legs last. Bad news is- it is super draggy paddling, once up, it is painfully slow, does not turn well. Although it is easy to keep on foil pumping- there is almost no forward projection- pumps straight up... you get nowhere... like getting around on a pogo stick.
I'm about 75kg. Rode the 200 prone on tiny days this summer. Thought it worked good for the teeny tiny surf i was riding, but soon as I switched back to the Iwa, I realized how much better it was, and I could still catch and ride the tiny lil bumps that were barely breaking.
I ride the 200 in tiny surf on SUP, I now find the GL210 better with Kai tail.
