Has anyone had experience with the RRD k-free 60 ? Mainly, I want to know if it will "flat" plane, like race boards do on the fins it comes with, 22cm I believe. I don't expect it to be a competive race board, but I would like to blast around at planeing speeds, with no or very little edging .
Thanks

Yes, but just got one and only one session on it, but it rides nicely upwind flat on the flat or even heeled a bit to leeward. Faster upwind than any board I have ridden before but no experience with race boards.

Very easy to hop on and ride. I took about 15 min to figure out the trim. I have ridden surfboards a lot and it is pretty different. you can edge this , but flat feels faster

Hi,
Is K-free hard on the legs? I have tried the Sector V2, which I plan to buy, but I found it quite hard (4 fins configuration). Then I saw the K-free in the market and with 3 fins, it seems more attractive to me. Have you compared it with the V2?

Thanks,
Kostas

I have ridden all Sectors from all years and the K-Free. As much do to the fin shape as the three fin setup, the K-Free feels like a Sector 54 but planes as early and fast as a Sector 60. Yes, the K-Free likes to be ridden flat, but it can also use some rail like a smaller board in waves. The only thing I really wanted out of the K-Free was a two strap option so I could compare it directly to the Sector 54 in the same setup.

We used to sell both, but now only the RRD, so like, whatevuh dude.
