Default RE: Which S-Type?

Hi Kevin

I'm 1,80m and my weight is 70kgs, I'm looking for a superfast and easy board that could handle my NeilPryde V6 7,5, and still use it with a 6 or 6,5 cambered sail I have yet to buy for stronger winds... (the most used sail would be the 6 or 6,5 though)
do you think the Stype 115 is large enough for the 7,5 at my weight, or should I go for a bigger model ?

The Stype 115 seems good to me but the documentation says it only handles sails up to 7,2

Yes go with the 115. I have used the 115 with 7.5 all summer last year with great sucess. I am 80kg.

Get this board. You will love it.

Hi,

I am about 82kgs and current have a 2005 model S-type 104, Kombat 85 and EV0 74. My sails are Saber 6.7m, 6.2m, Expression 5.7m, Alpha 5.4m, Combat 5.0m & 4.5m. Where I mostly sail is on bay, only a couple streets up from where Ian Fox sails.

I am currently thinking about upgrading some or all my boards. I love the S-Type and EVO. My plan is to maybe keep the EVO 74 for the 5.0m and 4.5m sails. What I am confused about is what size S-type should I go for that suits my weight and the 6.7m and 6.2m sails? I noticed the 2007 model states a smaller sail size range.

Also I would like a board in between the S-Type and the EVO that I can try and learn freestyle with the 5.7m and use the 5.4m when the swells gets up for some semi wave riding?

Any suggestions would help.

You are asking for quite a big range of sail sizes. For the 5.7 5.4 i would go with the Stype 93.. This board is really fun and can work with sails 6.2 and 6.7. For me who has the option, I personally like the 115 for sizes 6.2 and 6.7 but the 115 is definately not as good for the freestyle swells on a 5.4. From the sounds of it you could sell your 104 and get the 115 and the 93.

Kevin,

I ended up getting a 2007 model ST115 and a Kombat 97. With regards to the ST115, what footstrap settings and sail sizes do you use on your ST115?

Cool I am sure you will be stoked with your purchase!! For me I used the most forward and inside settings. I liked these setting because it was easier to spock and do forwards and stuff like that on the boards. If you want to just go fast and do chop hops then go with the straps on the outer position.

I used my 115 with 7.5 down to my Maui Sails Switch 5.6

Kevin,

Thanks for the quick reply. I have to say this forum and the sport from people like you show our sport is one of the friendliest sports. Thanks for all your help from all.

One last question, what fin sizes do you use with your sails on the ST115?

I used the 32 cm fin as my biggest but I know you can go 36 freeride fin with this board.
