Been thinking about replacing my t.rice with the HK too. I noticed the same about the trice with turns being intiated from the middle of the board.. its still a little strange for me coming from a camber board before. What size HK did you get and whats ur stats? Just curious to see if i got the right size for me. Im 5'8 , 180 pounds.
Iím 5'7, 165 and went with the 156. I feel itís the perfect size for me. I have the Rice in both 153 and 157. 153 is good for playing, 157 is big on me. The HK in 156 fits perfect. Its narrower then the Rice boards too. If you put a 157Rice next to it you can clearly see the difference. If you can demo it do it, or just buy it lol.
