I have not been on a S-Type 2007, but I have the 115 2006 wood and before that then I was the lucky owner of a Carve 121. So this is my refrence. The carve is very forgivven board that dos every thing so easy. For sure much easyer boad to progress on, But the
S-Type is so much more fun in terms of speed and direct board responce
. So if you are progressing from a larger boad and is beginning to learn to water start and jipe, then go for the carve. If you are looking for at high spped free racer that is demanding but fun to ride then the answer is S-Type. I hope you can use my answer...
