    i have once ridden one and i liked it. but go to a shop that sells them and ask them if they have a demo model of that board and is so can you try it out. as i would rather test it before i spend 700$ on it or more.

  3. i mean what feels best to your buddy might not feel and or work the best for you...know what im sayin?

    I've had a couple K-small's over the years,real fun board still kind of racy for junky ,sloppy stuff though. If you find a shop that has demos try it out,but also check out the Sashimi it has a bit more punch than the K-small. The K has some vee out the tail but the board still felt kind of stiff even with a very small trail fin(Merrick's little 2.5 shark tooth). The shimi has a large nasty single concave that just makes craploads of speed in anything!

    I think the CI Sashimi would be THE ultimate east coast board to have, it was created by al merricks son, I also prefer a pod shape. A pod is a great all around board, you can surf them really short and still catch waves with ease

    I have one. It is pretty stiff. I like the board but it is a bit tough to turn at times. However it does hold really well when you put your weight into a turn, i've found alot of looser boards spin out on me.

    Diggin this post out... Picked up a K-small bout 2 months ago and I'm really liking the way it responds to turns. Took about a day to get used to the rigidity of the board in a turn but once you get used to it your turns feel so clean.

    I learned how to ride on a 6' Round Nose Fish, if I could compare it to a car it would be like a huge Cadillac. Ksmall feels like a little sports car with great handling. Really happy with it. Deff progressed my surfing.
