RE: Stype 137 at Manly
If you are racing in the slalom there I would get the Stype for sure. It will be a lot faster and be better at beating all those Fx boards. A 9m will be the upper limit but if you are after the bottom end in those races use the swell to get planning and play around with fins. I'm surprised you haven't looked at the Isonic 133 or 122. It would be great in the lighter winds. All that width and speed. I found the carve 133 to small in those race conditions.( 2004) . Very hard to get of the line with a fleet of sails around you.
