I highly recommend getting racing sails - buy used if you're low on funds. You (like me) are very heavy and outside the design range of freeride equipment. It'll take a lot of drive to get you planing and regular sails will distort and feel heavy. Modern racing sails are designed to sail overpowered and have the stiffness and stability you're gonna need.
There's a huge difference between 110kg and 95kg so be wary of advice not coming from super heavyweights. My weight has fluctuated widely and it makes a bigger difference than people would assume.
