Agree with Ola : too many variables are at play to simply feed everything into a 2 dimensional table. The same gear may not work as good as intented for a super light/light/medium/heavy/super heavy weight rider simply because the wind range is shifted toward more high wind with increasingly wind force and rider weight. Optimal balance and trim between rider weight, wind force, sail size, fin size, board's and sail's shape is almost endless with a single and unique gear.

I believe rec sail size are given as an indication for an average rider's weight of 75 kg.

Cheers !
