With victory in the most grueling long distance race in 2010 – Holland’s five day 11 City tour – the K-15 has again proven itself the best all round race board. It also won the Japanese race championships two years running and most of the events in the competitive Florida series. It’s extremely efficient, user friendly and fast. The slightly rounded sleek underwater hull with a sharp nose gives a fantastic paddling sensation on flatter water. The shape also travels fast and smoothly in choppy water on all courses.
It catches surf easily and you can walk back in the cockpit to lift the nose to fit any wave shape. The water ventilation plugs are designed so that they can opened and closed with the touch of your fingertips. Keep them closed for flat water paddling or open them for rough water adventures. There are insert plugs in both fore and aft to tie down bags or even a storage box.
The K-15 is also a fantastic light wind windsurfing board, resembling the Serenity from Starboard’s windsurfing range. It doesn’t require a jumbo sail or pro-level skills to enjoy it. Best of all, it doesn’t even need real wind for an exhilarating ride. Simply attach your rig and center fin, hop on, sheet in and go.d riders.
