I am looking at getting a s-type 104 and need to know what sail sizes and what wind range they are good for. I weigh about 82kg.
Appreciate any comments.

I weight 74kg and I do own a Stype 104 the sail sizes that i used on the stype was from 4.8 up to 6.4 sails..
I even use this board during the PWA Gra Canaria slalom42 dscipline with a 4.7 and it was working great in those high wind even jibing perfect.
In Costa Brava spain i use this board with my 6.4 switch mauisails and the board was also okay.
I wo't recommend going bigger then 7.0.. but the board is pretty fast and sure you will enjoy it.

Thanks for the info. Do you think the 104 will handle a 7.0 sail or would a 6.5 be the biggest to use on it.

Yes, it can handle it..
To give you a correct answer I toke time and went to test it with a 7.0 sail and it was still working ok, but not as good as I taught it will work.
But to get a better feeling on the board I will recommend you to not go bigger then a 7.0..
hope this help
