I ended up with ordering the rrd, tough choice between rrd and temavento, but the rrd was cheaper, seems very little difference, I have also not heard nothing bad about them

Nothing bad - that's true but this board is much more technical than any other from 2012. She requires a precise driving. She is much demanding especially in high winds. You will feel more tired after 2 hours riding on it than on any other board from this season. However it's a good board for light winds but I would not highly recommend it.
I heard from one of a test riders that new K-rapida is a different beast - smooth, fast, easy to ride and forgiving. She should be available very soon, so I would recommend to wait for the latest realese from RRD.
Talking about the main topic: there is no answer which board is the best. It's easier to point out this season which one is the worst :wink:
I'm afraid you are not going to see any answers in such tittled topic. It's like asking which car is the best.
And winning does not mean all.
Put top riders on 2 years old boards and they are going to be still in the top in any competition.

Ahhh Damn! I could not find any info on the K-Rapida before ordering, what are the differences? larger volume, fins centred more?

Can't be any worse than the 2011 aguera I have been riding, the fins are just a few cm off the edge and on reach it is not very forgiving. )=

Is Kerneur using it for the Europeans or only worlds?
do you think that the K racce is competitive board to get?

no, K-race nickname "jellybean". its really not a bad board but its just enough off the performance of all the other boards to make it not competitive. i have seen guys go really well on them but these guys are not your average Joe's. Also seen these boards on a downwind tear looks like one of its advantages.
