The K-Rapida is part of the Racing series of boards introduced by RRD this season. It is a board designed for pro riders who demand no compromise performance. The board offers a unique mix of speed, control and stability, which makes it unbeatable on any race course.

It features a special hydrodynamic shape which allows it to run at incredible speeds, while it keeps the rider comfortably in control. The straightened outline, using a wider nose and special shaped tail profile, assures exceptional upwind tracking, while the lower scoop rocker line improved planing performance and prevents the nose from rising when the rider tackles heavier chop.

Thinner rails in the mid-rear section provide accurate control and better comfort at higher speed. The wider tail profile, combined with the tail wingers assure a perfect attack angle when heading upwind and assures a quick release under extreme speed on the downwind leg. The board is also very steady and has a very clean and fast glide. The board uses a tri fin setup which optimizes speed and grip.

RRD has crafted the K-Rapida using an exclusive, custom made full PVC sandwich laminated with Biaxial Glass fibers on deck and bottom. The standing deck area is built from wood and carbon.

the Rapida is a heavy board. however it is fast. you need some wind to ride powered though. it starts a bit slow, but afterwards it gains good speed. it's solid and stable. turns with power and slices nice through the waves....more
