Stephane- Before you decide what size boards to get you might want to check out this sail and board volume calculator that is based on body weight.

For you, anything under 140 liters is definitely going to be a sinker, and it will take about 20 knots for you to be able to plane with a 7.5. So I definitely think getting a BIG board (like formula) and some big sails would be a good idea. You (120 kg) riding a 111 liter board would be like me (72 kg) riding a 63 liter board; it would require too much wind to be practical most of the time.

Good luck!
