s Type 126 or 115?
 
What differences are there in terms of early planning, keeping planning and manoeverability on these boards?

I am not sure which to get I am 68kg and would want to use it with either a 7.5 T Bird or 6.6 Wedge.

Early planning and keeping planning is important but I also want to do planning freestyle ie Duck gybes backwind gybes, upwind and downwind 360s etc

What would people recommend?
Cheers guys

RE: s Type 126 or 115?
 
If you're more in for speed, go for the 126, you can get a bigger sailrange and more stabilety. If you want more freeride/style i say take the 115. eighter way, both boards would be fine for you considering your weight and the sails you have (appart that the recommended sailsize of the 115 is between 4.7 and 7.2 ... but you can be a bit naughty there ;))
The website states the main differences between the boards but it basicly is this: 115 is more freeride, 126 os more freerace.
i haven't riden an s-type yet so i can only state differences
