Thanks for all the advice, it's given me more to think about and some direction.
The idea of going slightly larger for now and then purchasing a smaller high wind board in the future makes quite a bit of sense. Waves are something I don't have a great deal of experience with as the biggest waves i have dealt with are about 6 inches high in the med, therefore I appreciate the advice on having to consider larger waves and a smaller board for the future.
The sale sizes suggested are also a great help
