Default S-type 137 vs Carve 133 ????

Hi all,

i want to buy a new board for light wind and sails with size from 6.5 to 8.5.
My weight is 85 kg and i'm thinking between the S-type 137 and the carve 133. Could recommend me between them (advantages and disadvantages)??? I'm very confused!!!

Is the Volumen of s-type really 137 liters??

Thanks in advance!!!

define light wind, I think otherwise you could be quite disapointmented.
C133/ST137 not light wind boards as in < 15 kts! Not if you want to go "VROOM". Then you sould really consider an FT138 (with a 9.5) or similar. ST137 gybes and rides more like an FT138 than a C133 anyway.
I can understand why you&#39;re confused, know the feeling.
If you have the possiblity then test the board in the intended conditions before buying (I&#39;m stupid, I always test if after purchase, not a good idea).

I wanted to tell light/medium wind, that is, 6.5 sail size for medium wind and 7.5-8.0 sail size for light wind. When i say light wind, it means I sail with 7.5-8.0 sail size.
I&#39;m not searching an Ftype or similar... I want something like carve, s-type, JP x-cite, freerace, etc... but i would like someone to tell me the differences between them to choose.

stype will provide a more locked in ride, much more slalomy with good gybes if you are willing to comit. The Carve will be looser, a more fun oriented ride with less speed and a slightly later planing that the stype. I tried the stype 126 and you need to pilot the board real good when the wind pick up but it is both unbeatable and real real fun. If you can do high speed freestyle tricks then you will love it...
