Farlo You should... when it gets really hot you feel there's plenty of volume for people of our weight, but surprisingly the low rocker, thin rails and relatively narrow tail make it quite enjoyable. Adrenaline guaranteed. In lighter winds it is probably not the most powerfull board but still delivers a lot of fun.

Farlo Hi Eric,

The ST126 was my lightwind board for three years. The biggest sail I had on it was a 7.3 (I'm 68 Kg). I thing it can handle 8-8.2 very well but it has a quite narrow tail (~43 OFO) and 8.5 might be the upper limit. It is OK with a 43cm fin and also 36cm for 7ish sails. The board is scarying fast with 6.0 and still handles the chops well. However 5.5 seems a bit small.

Have fun

S type advice please

Hi ive just bought a S type 126 and wondered if anyone has had on or has one and can tell me if they've tried a 8.5 (tushingham lightning) or is this too big and suggest fin size for this sail and 5.5 and 7m. Im 70kgish quite experienced sailor.
Thanks Eric
