Mixed bag of answers. I guess that the conditions/water state you sail in will be important. I'm 105kg/194cm and use an 08 iS111 with a 43cm select viper on both a 7.8m & 9m. For me, the 9m gets used in light winds (flat to small chop conditions) so no problems at all. The 9m would be alot more physical in large swell/rough seas. The 7.8m is fine in all conditions so I guess that a 8.4m would be a perfect match for you. Powered up, an 8.4m will not be to big. If the wind dies, you might get your ankles wet, but certainly no sinker.
