The question is more if you feel ready for such a small board. A Kode 74 will clearly be a bit more forgiving.
I've never really thought about comfort in windsurfing. Exocets claim to be a really comfortable ride... but i don't really see how. What makes a bigger difference than the 'comfort' of the board, I believe, is having the right kit, well tuned. Once you've got that the only discomfort is the board smacking chop super hard, but I'm young so that doesn't really matter to me.
