Default Windsurf gear

Hi to all!
im kind of new in the sport, i live in Mexico city but i used to sail in spain while i was studing. Now that i m back i want to continue but i have some question i want to ask you about some gear i want to buy.
My regular spot here is a lake where in windy season has 5 to 15 knots sometimes it get very gusty like 20 knots.

I also will travel to Baja and veracruz to get more wind, like 15 to 30 knots.
I weight 164 lbs and my level i think is intermediate/beginner, i hook in, tak, do some planning and jibing (still having problems with this last one! )
My question is what kind of gear is best suited for these spots and for my level.

I was thinking in a formula board with an 8.5 sail, or a 133 futura for my regular spot and a 104 mistral Syncro for the other spots.

I ll apreciate your advice!

Thanks!

PS. Congratulations for the site, I think is the most complete windsurf site i ve seen
