2007 S-Type 115 range

I am considering getting an 07 S-type 115 for lake use with 6.0 to 7.6 cammed sails.

I am a 140lb (64kg) intermediate.

The specs show a largest recommended sail of 7.2. For fast freeriding, do you think that 7.6 is pushing it or do you think it will be fine?

Also, how hard is the board to sail on non-planing conditions (getting through the wind-shadow)?

Thanks for your help,

I think I answered your question via email but I will answer again on here. I used the Stype 115 with great success on a 7.5 and I am much heavier than you. I think you will enjoy the board just fine with the 7.6 . The 115 was always one of my favorite boards in the range so I am sure that you will enjoy!

Happy Sailing.

Yeah go try it out. If it doesnt work come in.. I am sure it will work.. just might not be the optimum.. It is all good when you are on the water.

Thanks kevin, i think it work.. maybe it would help with a bigger fin beceause upwind was not verry easy.. i did it with the standard 29cm drake fin. Witch fin would work better? 38cm...?
Thanks for your reply;)
