The 76 is a bigger in real life (volume) but the 71 is rather close. But compared to the EVOs, the Quad 71 still is more effective in marginal conditions do to the fins providing better upwind and planing power. It works rather well with 5.3 I would say (and I'm your weight). The 76 is an awesome board, but for me it's more for underpowered 4.7 and lighter. When you're powered up or the waves are fast, it's just too much board, I reckon. So for what you describe, I think the 71 is clearly the best choice.
