ND Fly: Riding RRD Maquina K-Pro – trailer

RRD Team rider Andrea ND Fly Grandolfo developed a good mount and way to share with us his sessions and feelings on his new RRD Toys Maquina K-Pro and Religion MKIII

Got this amazing board only 5 days ago…
Used to RRD Gitana V2 I found it too light and snappy at first half an hour 3 days ago in quite flat and choppy conditions…
I was concerned if it would have flown away from my feet at any single wave!!!
The day after (the one in this video) a fun size swell came… and I could not believe how everything could come out easily!! wave after wave I started to adapt feet pressure to this new shape and weight, and suddenly it all started to work out very nicely…
Wave overtaking facilitated, complete control on the lip, super aggressive bottom turn and super easy re-entry even when too steep, perfectly loose when needed…

I’m quite faltering to go back on something else now! Will leave Gitana for big swell, but I have the feeling from the bottom turns I had that this new Maquina can handle quite a big size too… will see!
Wind lasted for 3 days only… last front of the monsoon season here in the Philippines most probably (quite sad!).
Anyway, some good shooting came out 2 days out of 3…
Soon I will be editing a proper video with material collected…
Stay tuned! you’ll see what I mean when I say that this board is really amazing!
