Another thing: The EVO 71 IQ might be another board to consider. A bit "in between" in the width and still really nice and compact which helps in windy stuff. I reckon this will be a very good small board for a heavier rider with a softer feeling to it compared to the Q74 and it also has this really stable feel when you put it on its rail on a long turn. My prediction (After only sailing it in lighter winds) is that it will take really well to being seriously pinned down by sail (over) power.
