The Salerosa has always been one of RRD’s top performers. This board has open o new dimension of wave riding over the years. And the new 2014 Salerosa K V2 follows this legacy. It is fine tuned and tweaked to the core to offer you the best big wave ride ever. This board can tackle over the head waves with ease and puts you in control at all times.

With the new Salerosa K V2 you can have fun in big waves whenever you want. It is a powerful stick, which can charge hard, but it is also easy to handle and very predictable. The board is developed by the RRD shapers in collaboration with elite rider Abel Lago and it is one of Abel’s favorite boards.

You can imagine that it delivers in waves. The board features a surf-oriented shape, with a longer curved outline which makes it fast and powerful. The narrower nose allows it climb waves easily, while the optimal volume distribution provides perfect floatability. A new rocker line with an increased tail kick provides speed and accurate control. The rails give you a good bite and allow you perform slashing carves. The concave hull section makes the board stable and assures a smooth glide.

The tail features a special, squared swallow-shaped tail. This allows you initiate powerful turns and keep the board perfectly under control when turning. A quad fin setup assures excellent grip and tracking. The Salerosa K V2 runs equally well in knee high surf and huge waves. It is built using a PU core plus polyester resin layers and a bamboo deck patch and biaxial glass heel reinforcements.
