Default Rio M - how to get planning faster...

Hi,

Im fairly new to the sport, but have managed to master the trapeze and starting to get into the straps when I can get my board planning.

But Im having some trouble getting my board into a plane unless, it's really windy. Im 180cm and my weight is around 85kg, my sail - or atleast the one I use the most is a Neil Pryde Spirt 7.2 twin camber sail.

Should it be a problem to get this setup planning in 15 - 17knots winds?

I can't figure out if its my technique/skills, that need work - or if I should get a bigger sail perhaps even a 9.0?

Thx
