Definitely keep the PA80-06. For B/J and high wind offshore cruising with smaller sails I think it is one of the best I've ever ridden. I liked the ride so much I bought two of them in 2006. It also carries bigger sails better than the boards that followed it. I have no problem at 83 kg having a great time with a powerful 5.8 in 15-17 knots and then dropping down as small as a 4.5 when it is 30+. It isn't as good on a wave as the later iterations of the PA or Kode, but for a smooth ride in rough conditions it is the ticket.
