Default RE: S-Type 137 vs Carve 133

I'd disagree with Duracell on the carve front. This years carve 133 can be very fast but has a sedate feel. It is also the best option for improving the gybes.

If you're fast enough to keep up on the straight then making your gybe will be the most significant improvement to your position in the race. If you're way behind on the straight and falling at the marks then the carve would be a good board to improve on.

The ST137 requires more user input than the carve but when you get the hang of it it can be faster and although early planing is not quite as good, it's acceleration is faster and in rough conditions can be faster than the iS145.

The iS145 is superb in light winds and flat water and will, with skill, be the first to plane, fastest and handle lulls with ease. However, it is harder to turn requiring good technique.
