hello

I'm planning to buy a new board.
It schould be used on the northsea and flatwater for jumping, some freestylemoves and blasting.
wind is mostly 3-4 bft
I'm 178cm small and 75kg big
I was thinking about the s-type 103. Is this a good choise for the things I want to do?
Other board I was thinking about was the exocet cross II
for what is the s-type mostly used?
I'm used to surf a fast agile board like the copello red line but I want the board to be airborne more easy.
thanks for the help!!

the s-type 115 is a good option, though the s-types are build for speed and not so much for freestyle even though they are quite agile. Another option can be the carve 111, simular sailrange, a bit bigger actually i think, and more freecarve-freeride minded, a good thing if you're going to the northsea.
Are u a Dutch or belgian surfer? Cuz then you can specify your location spots, i know a couple ones in the Netherlands and Belgium as i surf there aswell ... It might help with the boardchoice.

grtz

Ik zou vooral de Belgische kust afvaren maar het veerse meer e.d. en wissant zouden ook mogelijk moeten zijn.
dus de vraag is nog steeds of het de crossII of de s-type of carve dan.

heel erg bedankt

de crossII lijkt me niet de ideale keuze gezien de omstandigheden, de corss is meer chop gericht dan flatwater. Als je ook veerse meer af wil stuimen lijkt me de s-type 115 de meest ideale keuze. Ik vaar daar zelf met mn go tussen een hele hoop s-types en een behoorlijke concentratie carves. Maar ik moet zeggen dat je voor de carve 111 al behoorlijk lekkere wind moet hebben op het veerse meer in vergelijknig met de s-type

ST104 is a bit small for 3BF. ST is built for some bumping around though. You should go for technora if tricks is what you want to do. ST definetly blasts when powered.

ST and exocet are not alike.

ST is fast but slightly technical when you want to get everything out of it.

I think you would want to go one size up -> ST 115

ST is good in flat and chop and really nice in waves too (better than the KA if you ask me).

read what sb writes about the ST it just about nails it.
