The introduction of a Malibu to the Pipedream range was inevitable due to the long history of the brand and the ageing demo graph that have lived that history. Additionally the Malibu completes the range which boasts diversity over specialization.
The Malibu in the Pipedream range is of course designed with performance in mind rather than an attempt at repeating history by copying the relics.
The planshape of the Pipedream Malibu is punctuated with a severe hip in the tail section to give a very long board a release around the side bight fin position in order to make the board feel shorter. The tail is a pulled in sawn off rounded square which gives the surfer a corner in which to lever off.
LATERAL BOTTOM SHAPE
The bottom of the Malibu is a gentle rail to rail roll right through giving the board more ease rail to rail. The rail as a result is a thinish mid rail with no edges.
The nose rocker is low as most Mals are but the tail end has an exaggerated tail lift to loosen the heavy front end as much as possible The alpha centre fin and two side bights will give this big puppy as much pivotal freedom possible in a design like this.
Since most customers purchasing a Malibu intend to keep it for a long while I have engineered a very strong glass job with the use of a deck layer of 4 oz biaxle inegra. It adds weight but that is weight an EPS core needs to hold its inertia.
This board comes in GREY Deck / ORANGE Bottom or GREY Deck / GREEN Bottom.
