RE: SType 93 & 137
I looked at the ST93 and 104 today - seems the 104 may be somewhat better for upwind ability and still supposedly good for medium/strong burn and turn with 5.0-6.5 sails. I have decided to buy the ST104 next weekend unless I find some other compelling argument/board.
I think you are right about the large board - will look at alternative (GO etc) for larger board - want a board for light wind planing that also is knockaround enough to teach the family - muck around with - is this possible to get best (good compromise) of both in a large board? Any other suggested large boards?
