Help with board
I am looking for a board to replace my SeaTrend World cup. I know, really old, but I live in Montana and sail here only a half a dozen times a year. That board just rips, but I think it is time to upgrade. I sail 90% of the time here a 6.2, and want it to also sail a 5.2 overpowered. Our sailing is lake sailing, choppy, and it is important to be able to stay upwind, jibe beautifully, and it would be nice to be able to keep standing up when the wind dies. Sounds great, eh? I am a good sailor, sail all over the gorge, but don't do tricks. So I sail well, but I don't want to have to work hard on this board, if I'm going to sail gusty and unreliable wind, I want it to be fun. My biggest complaint about the Seatrend is that it slogs poorly, and when the wind drops a bit it is a real pain to keep moving before it picks up again. I weight 185.
I'm a bit worried about the S-type, might it be a bit too much of a race board?
No need for bump and jump, pretty much straight sailing, but it must jibe nicely. That is the best part given that we have no swell.
